INVESTIGATORS from the St Andrew South Police Division said they have charged three men, and are looking for three others in connection with last month’s multimillion-dollar heist on East Road in the Corporate Area.
Superintendent Carl Malcolm of the Hunts Bay Police Station said 22-year-old Corrian Collins, and security guards Oral Chin, 47, and Andre Malcolm, 26, were charged on Friday evening with robbery with aggravation, illegal possession of firearm, and conspiracy.

“The charges were made about 5:00 pm,” said Malcolm, who added that the men were taken into custody two weeks ago.
According to Malcolm, the police are also seeking Kenton Smith, otherwise called ‘Bredda’, Courtney Getton, also called ‘Bubla G’, and a man identified only as ‘Willo” who they said are persons of interest. All are from Arnett Gardens in West Kingston.
Police reported that men travelling in a Honda motorcar crashed their vehicle into another car in which three security guards were travelling. When the guards stepped out of the car to examine the extent of the damage done to their vehicle, the men in the Honda pulled their weapons, and ordered them to turn over the money.
The bandits escaped with more than $50 million, a portion of which has since been recovered, police said. (Jamaica Observer)
