Chris Martin

According to sources, two popular entertainers have had their motor vehicles confiscated by the police. One has been identified as reggae crooner Christopher Martin.

The vehicles were reportedly seized as part of a major crackdown by the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) and the Revenue Protection Division (RPD) of the Ministry of Finance.

When contacted, Christopher Martin's manager, Kingy, confirmed to THE STAR that the vehicle was indeed confiscated. He, however denied that the vehicle was illegally imported.

"We didn't import the vehicle. We bought the vehicle from a registered car lot. We went to the lot, saw the vehicle, liked it and purchased it. We have all the legal documents supporting this. Chris had the car for almost three years. This really came as a surprise to us," he told THE STAR.

Kingy added that their lawyers are currently looking into the matter, but in the meantime, they are focusing their attention on Martin's upcoming debut album Stepping Razor which will be released by the end of summer.

THE STAR was unable to get a comment from the second entertainer. It is also being alleged that the son of a prominent politician also had his vehicle confiscated during the crackdown.
