Cops urge 'Malta' to turn self in

Detectives in Westmoreland have renewed their appeal for alleged gangster Torneil Haughton, more popularly known as 'Malta', to turn himself in.

The police are also warning that it is a crime for people to harbour criminal suspects.

The police say Haughton, who is from Alma district, is wanted in connection with several murders and shootings in the Westmoreland Division.

In July, the police reported that Haughton had absconded bail in relation to a murder charge before the Westmoreland Circuit Court.

The police said he and another man, Jermaine Roy Brown, were charged with the murder of Rasheika Clair and Stacy-Ann Kelly, who were found dead on August 25, 2008.

The girls were reported missing seven days earlier.

Their bodies were found in a cave at Camp Savannah Mountain in Grange Hill.

The police said Brown and Haughton were given bail and were to appear in court on February 15, 2011, but they failed to turn up.
