St James wanted man captured

ST JAMES, Jamaica – A man who was featured on the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) 'Wanted Wednesday' campaign on October 5, was captured in St Elizabeth on Friday, October 7.

The man has been identified as Anthony Angus.

A team from the Counter-Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigations Branch swooped down on a house in Burnt Savannah in the parish earlier this afternoon, where, surrounded by highly

trained operatives, Angus surrendered.

Another man, who was at the same location, was also arrested.

According to the police, Angus is the second high-value target on the St James Most Wanted list to be accosted in as many days in St Elizabeth, following the fatal shooting of Oshane ‘Motumbo’ Earle in the same parish on Wednesday.

As Operation Relentless II continues, the police are urging wanted persons to turn themselves in.

If confronted by the police, they are being warned to surrender and not to engage the police in confrontations.
