With a major assault being waged on crime in St. James, the police hierarchy in the neighbouring parish of Trelawny has launched a major manhunt for the parish’s Most Wanted as it seeks to crackdown on violence-producers in the parish.
The five Most Wanted persons are Adrian McNeil – wanted for wounding with intent; Evon Williams, who is wanted for murder, Rohan Bryan, otherwise called ‘Monkey Man’, wanted for shooting with intent and illegal possession of firearm; Trevor Rhynie, otherwise called ‘Beenie Man’, wanted for illegal possession of firearm and assault at common law, and Renor Gayle – who is wanted for wounding with intent.
Winston Milton, Deputy Superintendent of Police in charge of Operation for the Trelawny Police, says in addition to the five Most Wanted men, the police would be working to flush out and dismantle four major gangs operating in sections of the parish.
They are the Sinners Gang, based in Hague Settlement; the Zion Gang, which operates from the Zion community; the Water Lane Gang, which operates between Water Lane and Newton Street, and the Lippy Gang, which has its operational base in Bunkers Hill.
The parish of Trelawny recorded 21 murders last year, with five recorded so far this year.
