A senior police officer along with two others charged with unlawful possession of narcotic drug was on Tuesday rejected by the Monrovia Magisterial Court.

Court officers told judicial reporters that Superintendent Williams D. Davis, Taxis Driver Sam Roberts and Ishmeal Sesay were rejected on ground that the vehicle that transported the alleged drug was not included among the evidence submitted to court.

They were taken back to the police headquarters until police investigators include the vehicle in question as part of evidence as provided by law, court officers said.

According to court document on November 1, 2014 the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) officers during the regular night duty intercepted the taxi.

In the process two bags of marijuana weighing 53 kilogram valued at L$318, 000 were discovered in the trunk of the vehicle.

The court document further said that Officer Davis along with Taxi Driver Roberts and Sesay were temporarily detained at the Salen Police Deport and later transferred to the Anti-Narcotic Unit at the headquarters of the Liberian National for investigation.

During investigation, the senior officer denied his involving but admitted chartering the taxi in question from Waterside in Monrovia to Bong County.
