KINGSTON, Jamaica – Three persons are now in police custody while two others are being sought by Organised Crime Investigation Division (OCID) detectives in connection with the seizure of items used to produce fake driver’s licences.

Those being sought are 40-year-old Mark Gayle of Constant Spring Grove, Kingston 8, and 30-year-old Damion Tomlinson, otherwise called ‘Short Man’ or ‘Shorts’, of no fixed address.

They are being asked to turn themselves in to detectives at OCID by Thursday.

The identities of those in custody are being withheld at this time.

Reports from OCID are that on Saturday, cops conducted two operations, one in Constant Spring Grove and the other in 2 West, Greater Portmore, St Catherine.

During the operations, several pieces of equipment and implements believed to be used for the manufacturing of fraudulent Government of Jamaica driver’s licenses, credit and debit cards, fraudulent certificates and other forms of identification were seized.

In addition, software and equipment used to clone debit and credit cards, a portable monitor with a miniature camera used to capture PINs for debit and credit cards, and a CPU were seized.
