The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said its officers have charged two men who were nabbed for the robbery of a courier’s motorcycle on the Jackson Town main road in Trelawny on Wednesday, April 8.

Those charged with the offence of Robbery With Aggravation are:

  • Tashwayne Ricketts, otherwise called ‘Biggs’, 25, from Seville Estate in St Ann

The JCF said: “Reports from the Falmouth Police are that, about 9PM, Ricketts and Gordon allegedly robbed a delivery man of his motorcycle as he rode along the roadway.

It added that a court date is being finalized for the two accused.
