Several held in Portmore police operations

ST CATHERINE, Jamaica— None of the 10 men who were listed as wanted by the police in Portmore, St Catherine, and asked to turn themselves in immediately, have come forward.

But that did not stop the police from going to search for them and, in the process, capture other men who were wanted but were not listed.

Senior Superintendent Christopher Phillips, commanding officer for the St Catherine South Police Division, told Observer Online that the police conducted several operations at different areas in the municipality this week.

As a result, several individuals were picked up and some turned out to be wanted. He added that the relatives of several men also brought them in, after hearing they were being sought by the cops.

“We will continue to do what is necessary until we have things fully under control,” SSP Phillips stressed.

The listed men are wanted for several crimes committed in the division, including, murder, shooting, and illegal possession of firearms. They are:-
