An identification parade has been scheduled for the two policemen, who were taken into custody in Montego Bay, St James last week on allegations of corruption.
Senior Superintendent Linnette Williams-Martin, head of the St. James Police Division, said the outcome of the identification parade could determine the future of the case.
The divisional commander also declined to divulge details of the case.
“It is only an allegation so I cannot say anything more at this time,” she stated.
The cops, who are attached to the Highway Patrol Unit, were taken into custody last Friday.
The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre understands that the investigation stems from an incident in Reading, St. James where a male driver was stopped for speeding.
A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up a bag with over $500, 000 which was to be used for the purchase of another vehicle.
Further checks reportedly revealed that the motorist also had an outstanding warrant for road traffic violation.
He was allegedly directed to the Montego Freeport Police Station to settle the warrant.
The two policemen were later called in and questioned by their superiors.
It is said that a search of their service vehicle and persons turned up $40, 000.
