Four members of the Jamaica Constabulary who are said to be affiliated with the Clarendon-based Ronko gang were further remanded when they appeared in the Home Circuit Court on Wednesday.

The accused Constable Tafari Silvera, the alleged leader of the gang, and Constables Danilo Barnes, Rojay Morrison and Teshneil Francis will remain in custody until February 2, 2023.

The remaining suspects inclusive of Jassett Brown, as well as Tevin Henriques, David Henry, Ovilgo McKenzie and Nicholas Simpson were also remanded.

The Ronko criminal network has been linked with a series of robberies, larceny, abduction, and criminal possession of illegal firearm which has taken place throughout the parishes of Clarendon Manchester, St. Elizabeth and St. James and Kingston and St. Andrew throughout the periods of 2019 to 2021.

At a press briefing held in March, Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of crime Fitz Bailey outlined that an unbiased approach will be taken to prosecute these members who runs afoul of the law.
