December 21, 2017


All except one of the 26 members of the Uchence Wilson-led gang were remanded into custody until January 10, 2018, when they appeared in the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Tashina Beckford, a member of the gang, was granted bail, as she had recently given birth.

The gang was dismantled during operations conducted in St Catherine, Clarendon, and the Corporate Area on December 2, when 15 key players were taken into custody. An additional 11 persons were subsequently arrested, bringing the total to 26. Three women and two members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force were also among those arrested.

All 26 suspects were charged with breaches of the Criminal Justice Suppression of Criminal Organisations Act.
