ST ELIZABETH, Jamaica — Donald Reid otherwise called 'John', who the St James police recently listed as 'wanted' for rape and buggery, has been captured.

Reid,a 46-year-old taxi operator of Portobello, St James, was arrested last Wednesdayin St Elizabeth during a police operation, which reportedly targeted individuals believed to have fled from St James because of the state of public emergency.

The accused was officially charged on Friday.

Citizens are being reminded that it is an offense the harbour wanted persons at their home and they can be prosecuted. Similarly, people put themselves and their families at increased risks of attack by other criminals.

The police are asking the public to share information on wanted persons, illegal guns and ammunition through Crime Stop at 311, 811, the Stay Alert App and through the tip line at 837-8888.

They are also reminding anyone who may be hesitant to call or share information that the life they save may be their own and are urging all citizens to do their part to help the security forces take back St James and Jamaica from criminals.
