Arrests expected soon for San Pedro’s recent shootings
San Pedro Police continue their investigations into two separate shootings on Saturday, July 10th, and Monday, the 12th. The Honourable Kareem Musa, the minister in charge of police, is optimistic and, during an interview with The San Pedro Sun, said arrests are expected to take place soon.
Musa visited the island on Wednesday, July 14th, as part of his national tour of the different police formations across the country. He stated that violent crimes in San Pedro have been reduced for quite some time and attributes it to the work the island police formation has done. “Occasionally, we will have incidents of crime as San Pedro is not immune to it. When the economy goes down, crime goes up, but as the Minister of Police, I feel proud to see that in our tourism destination, which makes a huge part of our economy, we are keeping crime down,” said Musa. Following the recent shootings, people were detained for questioning, but no charges have been levied so far. The Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, indicated that San Pedro would receive additional reinforcement. The additional resources will assist the island team in speeding up their investigations and get to the culprits soon.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
