TRELAWNY, Jamaica - one man, who police say was the leader of the Trelawny-based Boysie Gang, was killed by police this morning.

Police report that cops from the Mobile Reserve, the Flying Squad, the Trelawny police and members of the Jamaica Defense Force carried out a major operation in the Race Course area of Trelawny.

During the operation Cassell Robinson otherwise called ‘Boysie’ and ‘Jaro’ was fatally shot. 

Police report that Robinson was consistently listed as Trelawny’s most wanted person. He was wanted for murder, shooting, illegal gun  and drug smuggling among other crimes. 

Robinson was described as the undisputed leader of the Boysie gang and that he was a major player in the criminal underworld where he specialised in crimes for profit.

Three Glock pistols, 163 rounds of assorted ammunition and two kilogrammes of cocaine were seized by the operations team. 

The operation by the joint police/military team is continuing and the fatal shooting has been reported to the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).
