“We could not believe that the big don had a pink wig in his car! Pink! We were in shock,” a police source told Chat! yesterday, between bouts of uncontrollable laughter.

“We still in shock. Maybe that is why he was able to stay in hiding for so long, because people looking for a man but he was really a ‘woman’!”

Police attached to the Spanish Town Police Station, along with personnel from the police communications team, have confirmed that a pink wig was among items found in the vehicle in which Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke and Reverend Al Miller were travelling when they were stopped by members of the security forces on the Mandela Highway yesterday.

However, they were unable to say who wore the wig. Other items found in the vehicle in which the men were travelling were a pair of female glasses and a cap.

Police Commissioner Owen Ellington, told members of the media at a press briefing held at the Jamaica Defence Force headquarters at Up Park Camp on May 28, that some of the male corpses in Tivoli Gardens weeks ago, were dressed in female attire, indicating that members of the West Kingston militia which engaged the security forces in battle disguised themselves as women.
