Several alleged members of the Klansman Gang were arrested during a major anti-gang operation in Old Harbour, St. Catherine this morning.
Head of the Crime Portfolio, Deputy Commissioner of Police Fitz Bailey, gave an update on the operation during an emergency Press Briefing this afternoon.
He explained that in addition to the arrests, three firearms, a quantity of ammunition, a motor car and cash were seized.
One man was also fatally shot during an alleged confrontation with the police.
DCP Bailey said today’s operation culminated nine months of investigations into the gang by the Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Branch, (C-TOC).
During this nine-month period, 31 alleged members of the gang were taken into custody.
Meanwhile, DCP Bailey has sought to clarify that the 31 members do not include any of those released in the recently-concluded Klansman case.
