The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS - CRYS­TAL HAR­RI­SON/ CHAD BRYAN

Sev­eral cases of chicken were re­port­edly stolen from a hi­jacked Caribbean Broil­ers ( CB) mo­tor truck early Thurs­day morn­ing, with the driver of the truck be­ing taken to a lo­ca­tion in Kitson Town and re­leased.

The CB mo­tor truck was dis­cov­ered along the Dyke Road at 6 a. m. with its cargo of ap­prox­i­mately 160 cases of chicken miss­ing. The ve­hi­cle’s en­gine had also been left run­ning at the time of its dis­cov­ery.

The driver of the ve­hi­cle had also been forcibly placed in the trunk of a car by his cap­tors and trans­ported to an undis­closed lo­ca­tion in Kitson Town, where he was re­leased and left un­harmed.

Dur­ing the time of the ve­hi­cle’s dis­cov­ery it had been be­lieved that two bod­ies were dis­cov­ered on board, how­ever, ac­cord­ing to cor­po­rate af­fairs man­ager of CB, Dr Keith Amiel, checks within his or­gan­i­sa­tion re­vealed that no bod­ies were found in­side.

“I have spo­ken with three dif­fer­ent of­fi­cials from the com­pany in­clud­ing the fleet man­ager and there were no bod­ies as­so­ci­ated with the truck. It was found empty, run­ning with the key in the ig­ni­tion and the driver was re­leased,” he said.

Up to press time the po­lice could not con­firm the in­ci­dent.
