Wanted for questioning in relation to recent crimes in St Andrew North Police Division
THE St Andrew North police have tonight named dancehall deejays Vybz Kartel and Mavado as persons of interest.
Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adijah Palmer and Mavado, whose name is David Brooks are wanted by investigators to face interviews in relation to recent crimes committed in the division.
Police say Kartel wields considerable influence in a community known as ‘Big Yard’ while Mavado hails from a nearby community of Cassava Piece and is very influential there.
Last week Friday evening two men – 26-year-old Randal White otherwise called ‘Troy’ and Kevon Brown, 23 – both of Big Yard addresses were shot dead On Mannings Hill Road near the entrance to Big Yard.
Investigators said the double murder was the result of an internal conflict in Big Yard and named the two dead men as suspects in a number of shootings that took place in the area. The police said even though they were well known in Big Yard no one was seen mourning at the crime scene.
Palmer and Brooks are to report to the Constant Spring Police Station by 3:00 pm tomorrow.
