Police officers are investigating the death of one of their colleagues in a red sport utility vehicle, P9504, in Glenside, Mesopotamia sometime Wednesday night.

The identity of the officer has not been disclosed but iWitness News understands that the officer had a heart condition.

Reports are that the officer drank nine beers Wednesday night in a challenge.

He was reportedly sitting in the jeep with a close friend until sometimes close to dawn.

The officer is said to have had a heart condition.

However, when the friend, said to be a female, attempted to wake the police officer, he was reportedly unresponsive and she then raised the alarm.

The officer and the other occupant were in a vehicle parked on a vacant lot of land, where other residents of the village usually park.

Police have cordoned off the area and have begun initial investigations.

  1. That area is very close to my house. My condolences to the family. That park was once a home to many sporting events including soccer and inter village soft and hardball cricket. For years now the government has used it as a dumpsite now people park derelict vehicles and their function vehicles there. It is a shame the abuse and neglect that place
    has suffered.

  2. A lot of these cops need to go on a diet, big time. Dozens should be put on unpaid leave until they are fit to resume their duties by passing a comprehensive physical examination and demanding fitness test. The entire force is a disgrace.

    1. While I may understand your views on unfit personnel and it’s most definitely the case for the cause of overweight
      . Let me tell you that even the fittest of people can suffer heart problems. So please don’t be so harsh on your police officers
