Police Say No Link Formed Between Murder of Taxi Operator, JUTC Bus Driver


Acting Deputy Police Commissioner in charge of Crime, DCP, Fitz Bailey says they’ve not yet formed a link between the murder of the taxi operator and that of the JUTC bus driver.

The incidents happened hours apart and were believed to be related.

But the police say they have no evidence of this.

The Acting deputy Police Commissioner says they’re not ruling out that the two incidents could be connected but they are not assuming they are.

And he’s assuring fearful JUTC drivers that the police will be ensuring their protection until the tension eases.

Meanwhile, Acting DCP Bailey expressed condolences to the families of the two drivers who were killed in St Andrew in the last 48 hours.

And, the senior police officer says the Constabulary’s work was compounded yesterday by prank calls and fake news of threats and bomb scares following the transport sector unrest.

He’s appealing to social media users to be responsible in their posting.
