POLICE?descended on Deacons, St Michael, this evening in an area called the “Red Sea”, conducting raids and searches.
The area was blocked off by police vehicles for close to three hours as several police officers with sniffer dogs searched bushes, homes, and even some of the men on the block. Traffic had to be diverted during the lengthy process.
Curious onlookers and residents converged on the street in their numbers to witness the operation.
This is the fifth St Michael area that police have raided for the week after Commissioner of Police, Darwin Dottin expressed concern about a string of violent crimes which occurred late last year. At that time he announced that police were putting systems in place to curb the criminal activity.
So far, police force have netted illegal firearms in some of the areas. The operation is expected to continue this week.
