Two held for officer’s murder

Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of PC Kryston Ramirez last Sunday.

The two were arrested during Operation Strike Back (OSB) exercises conducted in the Northern Division, which led to the arrests of 11 others.

The exercises were conducted in the Carapo and Peytonville areas, between Monday and Tuesday.

Ramirez was gunned down in Arima around 2.30 pm last Sunday while liming at a sports bar. 

The arrests of the two suspects comes a day after a teenager was held for questioning in connection with the officer's killing. 

During the exercise five people were arrested in Carapo for gang related activities; two for possession of marijuana; two for obstruction, one for a shooting offence and another in connection with arson and sacrilege offences.

The exercises were coordinated by ACP (Ag.) Mc Donald Jacob and spearheaded by Snr. Supt. (Ag.) Curtis Paul, including officers of the Northern Division, Guard and Emergency Branch, Inter-Agency Task Force, Central Division, North Eastern Division, Eastern Division, Canine Unit and Air Support Unit.
