Police officers assigned to the Hunt’s Bay area and the St Andrew South Police Division area are now taking extra precaution after learning that a gang operating in the area placed some members of the police force attached to the Hunt’s Bay Police Station on a hit list.
According to police reports, on Tuesday, September 11, two men were picked up during a raid and were taken to the Hunts Bay Police station.
They were subsequently searched and their cell phones seized.
Further reports are that detectives searched the phones and discovered a WhatsApp chat group with a message that displayed the names and photographs of five police officers on a hit list.
In this same message, a man who the police said is “a person of interest” states that he was willing to take on the job.
The police have since launched a search for such person or persons involved who they suspect are part of an organised criminal gang.
