first_imgAn arrest warrant has been issued for a rank attached to the Tactical Services Unit (TSU) of the Guyana Police Force by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan, after he failed to attend court to answer a charge of obtaining money from road users to drop a traffic charge.Mark Collins and his colleague Chris Brown were summoned to appear in court after they allegedly accepted a ‘bride’ to drop a traffic charge.The court heard that on December 7, 2017, at the Ruimveldt Police Station, while being employed by the state, Collins and Brown obtained a sum of $10,000 from Iyana Hutson as inducement or reward to forego instituting charges against Dwayne Dover for a traffic offence he had committed.On Friday, Collins did not make his court appearance, but Brown appeared. Brown’s attorney, George Thomas, in a submission for bail, told the court that his client is innocent, and is also unaware of the allegations that were made against him.Brown was placed on bail in the sum of $5,000, and the matter was adjourned to August 5.last_img
