Cop says he isn’t ‘Special’ booted from ISCF over seizure of juice vendor’s car

PORTER… wants to make it clear that he isn’t the Owen Porter booted from the force in 2008 over the seizure of a vendor’s motor car that was never recovered The detective explained his plight Wednesday when the Jamaica Observercaught up with him in downtown Kingston. He said he had been inundated with calls and stopped by people who had mistaken him for the booted cop. “My name is Owen Anthony Porter, I’m a detective corporal, I am not the person most people are referring to,” Porter said, showing his Jamaica Constabulary Force identification card. “Yes, I know the individual who was dismissed. I am still serving. There needs to be some consideration that there is another Owen Porter in the police force. I’m not the person who was dismissed,” said Porter, who is also studying law at a United Kingdom-based institution. Special Corporal Owen Porter was dismissed from the Island Special Constabulary Force six months after seizing Lovell Green’s motor car on December 1, 2007 in downtown Kingston. The dismissed Porter, who was assigned to the Darling Street Police Station, was dismissed at the end of an inquiry into the seizure of the vehicle without any apparent reason. Green later filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court against the dismissed Porter and the Attorney General’s Department, seeking damages for loss of income and to recover the cost of the 1990 Toyota Corsa. Attorneys for the State accepted liability and an assessment of damages hearing was held last month during which Green, who was represented by attorney Garth Lyttle, was awarded close to $5 million plus interest.
