KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Police High Command says a high level investigative team headed by an assistant commissioner of police is currently probing a threat issued through a voice note that is being circulated on social media.

In a release today, the police said it is believed that the threat was posted by a teenager.

“An active multi-agency investigation is now underway and the matter is being treated with the highest level of attention,” the release said.

The police also urged individuals to desist from circulating the audio clip, as it may cause undue anxiety at this time. They are asking individuals who may have information that can assist with the investigation to contact the Counter Terrrorism and Organised Crime Branch (CTOC) at 967-1389, 811, Crime Stop at 311 or by using the Stay Alert App to submit information.
