POLICE REPORTEDLY got their wanted man during a raid yesterday in Deacons Farm. 

With tensions high among some youth, police took no chances as they deployed their Tactical Response Unit and other armed detectives to apprehend the suspect.

Several branches of the police force came together for what public relations officer Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch described as “an investigation”.

Following a chase from Spring Garden to the Deacons Housing Area, police held the suspect who was linked to a murder earlier this month, according to reports. (AD)
