  1. Great Job !!! A step in the right direction.

    Some more proactive actions by the police will not not eliminate crime but will mitigate it to a point the criminals will think before they act.

    great Job guys !!! – keep the good work.

  2. Job well done again, continue to pile up the pressure on these worthless thugs. There shall be,no rest,no peace for them, we’ll persue them from all corners, bays,creeks and hiding holes in this island.

  3. The police needs to be doing this kind of operation everyday at different location around the island as a matter of fact there should be a squad especially designed for that and keep those good 4 nothing on their toes make them sleep standing up have them always running no rest for the wicked

  4. These boys are maybe back on the street already. In depth analysis will show these 4 are well know to the police.
