Teacher posing as policeman arrested and charged

by February 8th, 2020

Police have arrested and charged a teacher following his alleged attempt to impersonate an officer while armed with an illegal firearm and ammunition.


He has been identified as 38-year-old Troy Chambers of Killarney Avenue, Kingston 20.


Reports are that about 5:00 p.m., on Thursday, February 6, Chambers visited the Elletson Road police station and introduced himself as a sergeant of police.


He was in the company of another man, who he claimed he had brought in, to give a statement to the police.


Chambers, who was in possession of a firearm, subsequently aroused the suspicion of officers on duty.


He was then asked to produce his police identification card as well as his firearm license, which he could not.


Chambers then admitted to lawmen that he is not a police officer, which resulted in his arrest and the seizure of the illegal Glock pistol containing 18 rounds of ammunition.


The following day, investigators visited chambers home with a search warrant and seized several items.


These include fifty-eight rounds of ammunition, thirty-three spent casings and five magazines.


Police also found one handcuff, one Glock pistol case, two holsters, one magazine pouch and one combat belt.


They also seized a firearm license with the name ‘Carl Samuels’.


Chambers was charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition as well as impersonating a police officer.


He is to appear in the gun court on Wednesday, February 12.
