Teacher charged with impersonating cop at station for court Wednesday

The teacher who has been accused of trying to impersonate a police officer, and with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition while doing so, is to appear in the Gun Court on Wednesday.

Reports have also emerged that the man identified as Troy Chambers, has retained the services of attorney Peter Champagnie QC.

Detectives at the Elletson Road Police Station in Eastern Kingston arrested and charged Chambers on Thursday, February 6.

Reports are that about 5pm, Chambers visited the Elletson Road Police Station and introduced himself as a sergeant of police.

Allegations are that Chambers was in the company of another man, who he claimed he had brought to give a statement to the police.

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

Police said Chambers was asked to produce his police identification card, as well as his firearm licence, both of which he failed to present.

The police said Chambers then admitted to lawmen that he was not a police officer, which immediately led to his arrest and the seizure of the firearm he had, a Glock pistol with 18 rounds of ammunition.

On Friday, February 7, investigators visited the home of Chambers with a search warrant and the following items were reportedly seized:

                •             Fifty-eight (58) rounds of ammunition

                •             Thirty-three (33) spent casings

                •             Five magazines

                •             One handcuff

                •             One Glock pistol case

                •             One firearm licence with the name ‘Carl Samuels’

                •             Two holsters

                •             One magazine pouch

                •             One combat belt
