Wanted man surrenders to cops
Another St James wanted man is now in police custody. Kirk Stevens, of a Flanker address, turned himself into the police last Friday morning at about 6 a.m., and was officially charged last Saturday.
Stevens was accompanied by his lawyer at the time of his surrender.
Stevens was wanted for two counts of murder and one count of shooting with intent.
He will face charges to those offences when he appears before the court.
Stevens is the second wanted man from St James arrested by the police in recent times.
The first was Donald Reid, who was apprehended in St Elizabeth, last month.
The Police High Command said that they are actively pursuing the other wanted men on the list.
Meanwhile, another list with the names of eight persons who are wanted for various crimes was issued by the St James police yesterday.
The police say the list includes persons who the police had previously identified as persons of interest but have now been classified as wanted.
The police say it has been using information provided from both Crime Stop along with the Jamaica Defence Force tip lines to aid in the apprehension of these individuals.
