Keen powers of observation and a quick response by officers of Western Division, led to the arrest of two suspects on Wednesday, June 05th, 2024.

Around 7:15 p.m. yesterday, a man parked and secured his Toyota Aqua Hybrid vehicle, in the grassy area along Audrey Jeffers Highway, opposite the Hasely Crawford Stadium, in the vicinity of the Wrightson Road Extension traffic lights, and went away.
