Following the utilisation of the Jamaica Eye technology, a team of officers assigned to the Matilda’s Corner Police Station were alerted to two men travelling along Old Hope Road in a vehicle fitting the description. The vehicle was intercepted at 4:30 p.m., with the men aboard. The vehicle was recovered and the men taken into custody. Their identities are being withheld pending further investigation.
