Probe prowl­ing mo­torists in Bogue Heights


Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS - Mon­tego Bay

This is an open let­ter to Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Carl Wil­liams. I WRITE as a re­turn­ing res­i­dent from the United King­dom cur­rently re­sid­ing in the Bogue Heights res­i­den­tial area, close to Read­ing in Mon­tego Bay.

As has been pre­vi­ously re­ported on many oc­ca­sions, there ex­ist nu­mer­ous al­leged scam­mers re­sid­ing above our Bogue Heights neigh­bour­hood in the com­mu­nity of New Ram­ble Hill, where, ear­lier this year, three al­leged scam­mers were mur­dered and oth­ers in­jured in a gun shoot-out.

Quite reg­u­larly, I hear gun­shots be­ing fired in and around our com­mu­nity that re­quires your at­ten­tion. Over a two-month pe­riod, two Bogue Heights res­i­dents, who I per­son­ally know, have been robbed close to the Bogue main road and nu­mer­ous sus­pi­cious mo­tor ve­hi­cles are seen lurk­ing be­low the Bogue Heights com­mu­nity in the early morn­ing and evening hours seek­ing to rob us res­i­dents.

One of these sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cles ap­proached me while I was wait­ing on the Bogue main road by the bus stop just be­low Bogue Heights Boule­vard and sought to ha­rass me with the in­ten­tion of get­ting me close to the ve­hi­cle, pos­si­bly to rob and kid­nap me.

In re­cent months, there have been nu­mer­ous per­sons driv­ing mo­tor­cy­cles through­out the Bogue Heights area at all hours of the night and stop­ping at some of our gates, par­tic­u­larly be­tween the hours of 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. We res­i­dents are very scared.

I am ap­peal­ing to you as po­lice com­mis­sioner to kindly and im­me­di­ately take the nec­es­sary mea­sures and de­ci­sions to en­sure that our Bogue Heights neigh­bour­hood is reg­u­larly pa­trolled by the Mon­tego Bay po­lice. We also re­quest that an im­me­di­ate in­ves­ti­ga­tion be con­ducted into these sus­pi­cious parked cars and bikes in our com­mu­nity.
