Cops arrest, charge suspects behind robberies on motorbikes

Investigators from the St. Andrew Central Police Division have strengthened their operational and investigative strategies in recent times, leading, among other successes, to the arrests of six males, following a spate of robberies with the use of motorcycles within the division.

The suspects, three of whom are juveniles, were picked up by law enforcers in three separate incidents – on Old Hope Road, Half-Way Tree Road and in New Kingston, all in the division - and cellular phones, handbags and other items believed to have been stolen, were seized.

The suspects were picked up in ongoing operations which began on August 4.

Two of the males have so far been charged with robbery with aggravation. However, their names are being withheld, as all six are to face identification parades in relation to other similar cases that have been under investigation.
