Hanover gangster linked to 10 murders
'Fry Eye', a man the police said is one of Jamaica's most wanted, has been linked to more than 10 murders as well as several cases of shootings and robberies.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Ealan Powell, who heads the Jamaica Constabulary Force's Criminal Investigations Branch (CIB), said James is the leader of a Hanover-based gang and a major violence producer in western Jamaica.
Fry Eye, whose given name is Yasser James, abscond bail from the St. Elizabeth Police was wanted by the Area One Police for several serious crimes to include multiple murders and shootings.
The 23-year-old, who is from Epping district, Hanover, was on Thursday morning captured along with two other men in Green Acres, Spanish Town, St. Catherine.
The police said Fry Eye's capture was the result of a joint operation by members of the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Branch (C-TOC), the Narcotics Division and the St Catherine North police.
ACP Powell says James arrest is a major success for the police and praised his colleagues for the work that led to his capture.
