Police officer caught stealing mobile phone

A police officer, Modou Mbowe is under investigation after he was caught allegedly stealing a mobile phone.

The incident happened on Sunday night at a shop in Nyofelleh, a small village in Kombo South, West Coast Region.

In a video showing the incident, Modou could be heard saying "he is a police officer, who is yet to be regimented."

An eyewitness disclosed: "Inside his car, they found a police warrant card with his photo on it. He also had a baton similar to the one used by paramilitary officers."

But the deputy police PRO Cadet ASP Muhammed Y Darboe said: "Since he is not a regimented police officer, then he's not a police officer."

He added: "Every officer under the Gambia Police Force is regimented. Maybe, he is a private security guard belonging to one of the new security companies."

Ebrima was handed over to the police by residents of Nyofelleh.
