The accused senior police officer has been identified as 41-year-old Lenroy Samuel.
He was charged yesterday after a search of his residence uncovered several rounds of ammunition.
“It is very important for an officer of the law to have integrity and abstain from any form of illegal activity. Those found to be on the wrong side of the law will be arrested, charged and prosecuted,” Commissioner of Police Mark Collins has said.
Samuel is being held in custody pending his appearance at the Magistrate’s Court.
This is the second police sergeant to be charged with a criminal offence within the last three months.
Sergeant Troy St Helen was suspended from duty after he was charged with possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply back in July.
