Len Besthoff of Channel 3 WFSB continues to investigate the whereabouts of a city fire truck donated to Hartford’s sister city — Morant Bay, Jamaica — that apparently never made it there.
Besthoff reports that the truck is now in Jamaica’s capital city of Kingston, according to a former Hartford city councilwoman. You can read his post here. There have been varying reports about the truck’s whereabouts.
Besthoff also reports that Andrew Lawrence, a Hartford Police Department sergeant who was being investigated by internal affairs to see what, if any, role Lawrence played in shipping the city-owned fire truck to Jamaica, has been “cleared of any wrongdoing.”
“The HPD launched an investigation into Lawrence around the time of our report, and according to the documents we have just acquired, Sgt. Lawrence has now been cleared of any wrongdoing,” the post states.
Hartford Police Lt. Brian Foley, responding to our inquiry this afternoon, said the internal affairs investigation into Lawrence has not been completed.
