With spiraling murder figures and a spike in violent activities across St. James, the police have launched a massive manhunt to capture four men listed among 19 of Jamaica’s Most Wanted.

The four, who are all wanted for murders and shootings committed in several communities across the parish, have been described as extremely dangerous and were encouraged by the Police High Command to turn themselves in by midday last Friday, but up to press time, none of the men had adhered to the appeal.

The four Most Wanted men are: Ryan Peterkin, otherwise called ‘Ratty’ of Retrieve District, who is medium build, black complexion and known to bleach his skin. He has ‘666’ tattooed on the left side of his neck, and tattoos on both hands and chest up to his neck. Adrian Robinson, otherwise called ‘Rasta’ of Crawford Street, Mt. Salem, St. James, who is 5’5 inches tall, dark complexion, slim build, wears a dread locks hairstyle, has a full beard, and is about 40 years-old.

Delano Wilmot, otherwise called ‘Lano’ and ‘Prekeh Bwoy’ of Mother Lane, Retrieve, St. James. He is 6 foot-tall, of black complexion and is known to bleach his skin. He usually wears a cap and has a gap between his front teeth. Also being hunted is Arnold Gayle, otherwise called ‘Guy’ of Catherine Hall, St. James. He is about five feet seven inches tall, of brown complexion, medium build, sports a corn row hairstyle, has big ears with round nose, thick lips and a round face.

Marlon Nesbeth, Senior Superintendent of Police in charge of St. James, told the Western Mirror that the police are going all out to nab these men and are cracking down on other criminal elements which have been wreaking havoc all over the parish, with a number of gangs on the radar of the police.

He explained that the Gee City and Unknown Killers have been plaguing Salt Spring, while the Rebel Gang has been operating from Providence Heights, Nation Crux in Canterbury, with remnants of the Ski Mask gang still operating in Barrett Town, and the Bowzer Gang, have been roving the city.

The St. James police chief says Rose Heights, Maroon Town, Anchovy and Cambridge, have been featuring prominently in bloody killings in recent months and are areas which are being closely monitored by the police.

The police, as part of their strategy, have been seeking active partnerships with churches and other community stakeholders to stem what they say is the recruiting of young boys as operatives of gangs.

SSP Nesbeth says the police have also been seeking to plug the points of entry of illegal guns into the country and parish in a bid to crackdown on the number of gun-related crimes, especially murders in St. James.

“We will be targeting the bigger heads in the lottery scam because despite what people believe, it is still operating and we will be going after the major players and to seize their assets under the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transactions) (Special Provisions) Act, popularly known as the Lotto Scam Act, as they have been funding much of the gang activity and gun-running in the parish,” said Nesbeth.
