Two arrested in Clarendon after discovery of alleged stolen items
CLARENDON, Jamaica — A taxi operator and an unemployed man were taken into custody following an operation in Clarendon on Thursday morning.
According to Clifton Green, deputy superintendent in charge of Criminal Investigations in the Clarendon division, several household appliances, believed to have been stolen, were recovered during the search of two premises, one in Bushy Park and the other in North Street Denbigh in the parish.
Stoves, washing machines, television sets, computers and other household articles reportedly valued at $1.5 million were recovered.
The items were reportedly seized at the Bushy Park premises which police say was being used as a store to sell the stolen appliances.
Lawmen indicate that since the operation, some of the recovered items have already been identified by at least one complainant whose house was broken into and items taken.
Meanwhile, DSP Green used the opportunity to remind the public not to support criminals by buying their “ill-gotten products.”
