ST ANN, Jamaica — A teenage girl is now at the centre of a criminal investigation involving the suspected theft of cables belonging to one of the country’s major telecommunications companies.
According to the police, she was arrested, along with two other men, in an operation on the AGR Byfield Highway in St Ann on Sunday.
The police said about 3:00 am, officers were on patrol when they observed a Hino motor truck and a Nissan Tiida motor car parked on the roadway. They went to investigate and upon their approach, a man reportedly entered the motor car and attempted to drive away.
