ST JAMES, Jamaica — The St James Police have arrested and charged one of its most wanted men. He is 25-year-old Akeem Bailey.
Bailey, otherwise called 'Stamma', was wanted after he was “captured in CCTV footage that went viral on social media, robbing gas pump attendants, armed with a handgun," the police said in a release.
Bailey was apprehended by the police during a "high-level intelligence-driven operation" in the community of Albion last Friday following the launch of Operation Relentless II.
He was charged with robbery with aggravation on Monday, September 26.
The police say Bailey is also "a suspect in connection with a string of armed robberies committed at service stations, a hairdressing parlour, and gambling houses in St James, St Ann, Trelawny and Hanover".
Further reports from the police are that an associate of Bailey was also arrested after he was held in a stolen motor vehicle on September 19. His identification is being withheld pending an identification parade.
The police are urging anyone who may have been a victim to contact their parish's CIB branch or call Crime Stop at 311.
