Two men caught on video opening gate to flooded Bog Walk Gorge, charged

The two men who were caught on camera breaking open the padlocked gate to the Bog Walk Gorge, in St. Catherine have been charged.

They are 45 year old Glenroy Denton and 52-year-old Garth Brown.

They are facing charges of malicious destruction of property and breaching the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management, ODPEM Act.

Video footage surfaced of the two men, trying to open the gate after they were closed during flood rains on Monday September 26, to prevent persons from using the gorge.

One man was charged on September 29 and the other yesterday (October 3).

Head of the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch ACP Gary Mckenzie says the men are to face the court on Thursday October 6.
