Constable Jhanoye Johnson pled guilty to Larceny charges when he appeared in the St. James Parish Court on Wednesday February 7, 2018, after he was arrested and charged by detectives from MOCA West for breaches of the Larceny Act on Wednesday January 31.
Reports are that on Friday January 26, a Sergeant at the Barnett Street Police Station observed that a motorcycle which was seized earlier in 2017 and being stored on the compound was missing. Further enquiries led to the sergeant questioning Johnson about a motorcycle which he drove onto the compound that was similar to the missing bike. Detectives from MOCA West were then contacted and an investigation conducted. During an interview session, Constable Johnson confessed to removing the motorcycle from the station compound and making modifications to it.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday April 10, 2018 in the St. James Parish Court.
