Gloves And Mask Stolen From K.P.H Found at Funeral Home in Kingston

Twenty-five cases of gloves and masks, suspected to be stolen from Kingston Public Hospital have been seized by the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime (C-TOC) arm of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. 

Senior Superintendent of Police Stephanie Lindsay confirmed the raid, which took place at Brown’s Funeral home located at 51-55 North Street in Kingston. 

The raid took place between 2 p.m and 5 p.m. this afternoon. 

The head of the Constabulary Force’s Corporate Communications Unit told the media that no one has been arrested and investigations continue. 

At a press conference a short while ago, Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton said the public health system has lost a lot of protective gear through theft.

"It's really contributing to the challenges that we face," he said.

Tufton said people are stealing the gear to sell them in the marketplace.
