Investigators at CTOC have taken a male district Constable in custody and recovered an illegal firearm and ammunition from Plum Lane in St Andrew last night.

The intelligence-driven operation was to target wanted men in the space that made headlines recently over the beheading of two men.

Sleek understands the operation began last night and investigation is ongoing.

The policeman in custody is attached to the information arm of the force, corporate communications unit (CCU).

On October 16, Mark Wellington, otherwise called ‘Blackie’, of a Maxfield Avenue address and Leonardo Hendricks, otherwise called ‘Platty’, of a Kew Lane address, also in the Maxfield area, were beheaded.

Investigators believe the men were killed in connection with ongoing gang violence in a section of Maxfield Avenue called Rome.

Since their demise, the security forces have been policing the White Hall Avenue space at regular intervals.

Several arrests have also been made.
