POLICE this morning raided the home of Kingston Mayor, Desmond McKenzie.
A police source said the cops were interested in a sports utility vehicle which was suspected to have been featured in suspicious activity in Tivoli Gardens. However the cops discovered that the vehicle they were interested in was not the one at McKenzie's residence.
"The police went there asked some questions and left," the source said.
McKenzie, who is the councillor for the Tivoli Gardens division, grew up in the community and is a protege of former Member of Parliament fo West Kingston and Prime Minister Edward Seaga.
He now resides in the upscale community of Waterworks in upper St Andrew.

Levity joins his brother's business partner, Justin O'Gilvie in custody.
Police are also looking for Harry Mcleod, also called 'Harry Dog'; Prince Bucket, also called 'Tugman'; and Paul KirkPatrick, otherwise called 'Teddy Paul' who are believed to be members of the Shower posse.
