THE Westmoreland police have made a major breakthrough into last week’s killing of three security guards, including two women at the Guardsman Limited office in Sheffield, Westmoreland after four more persons were taken into custody this morning. The police also recovered three firearms, including the two that were stolen from the three slain guards.

A highly placed Jamaica Observer police source disclose that one of the four who were taken into custody this morning was formerly employed to Guardsman Limited, but was recently fired.

The four were picked up during police operations in Three Miles River and Seaton Cresent, Savanna-la-Mar, in Westmoreland.

This brings to six the number of persons that have been arrested in connection with the grisly triple murders.

Meanwhile, investigators continue their questioning of the two suspects, including a security guard who were taken into custody on Friday following the discovery of the bodies. They remain in custody.

The bodies of 33 -year-old Bryan Morris, of Station Road, Little London, Westmoreland; 40-year-old Sylvia Beckford of Whitehouse, also in Westmoreland; and 31-year-old Judith McCauley, of Cardwell District, Green Island, Hanover, were all discovered  at the premises of Guardsman Limited in Sheffield Westmoreland early Friday morning.

The three security guards, whose bodies were found by a supervisor on the premises, had multiple stab wounds all over, while one of the women had a gunshot wound. Morris, who was reported also worked as a tourism courtesy corps officer, was found with his hands handcuffed behind him.
