Policeman Walks Free from Extortion Charge

Updated: February 9, 2016

A charge of extortion against police constable Elvin Nah was struck out today by the Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith, when the complainant, Carlton Flowers, failed to appear and the trial was set for its final adjournment. The incident occurred on July 6, 2014, in San Pedro Town. According to the allegation, Nah searched a golf cart that Flowers and another man were in and found two little transparent plastic bags that contained cannabis. Flowers reported that he was taken to San Pedro Police Station where Nah extorted four hundred dollars from him for not charging him with possession of controlled drugs. Nah was represented by attorney Anthony Sylvestre.
