THE ‘Umbrella’ gang has emerged as one of the “most brutal” criminal organisations operating across the country.
The gang has made its name in Newlands, St Catherine, where it is involved in a bloody battle with a gang known as ‘Uprising’.
Thugs from the gangs are also involved in extortion, rape and other crimes.
According to some residents, the members of the Umbrella gang create more trouble because they are not originally from Newlands but are trying to take control.
The St Catherine South police claim the gang is responsible for more murders than any other in the history of the division.
At present, the gang is said to be led by its jailed leader.
