The police say they have arrested one of the country's most wanted men.

He is Aston Daley, otherwise called ‘Daleybwoy’, ‘Ricky’ and ‘Ricardo’, of Shelter Rock in Spanish Town, St Catherine. He was a member of the One Order Gang.

Daley was wanted by both the St Catherine North police and the Major Investigation Task Force for murders, shootings and related crimes. He was nabbed during an operation in Wynter’s Pen in the parish yesterday.

The police say Daley was a major contributor to the increase in violence in the old capital since the start of the year.

Two other persons were also arrested during the operation, which was conducted by police personnel from the Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Branch and the Mobile Reserve. They are facing charges of harboring a criminal.

All three are to be interviewed in the presence of their attorneys, with a view to lay formal charges soon.

Against the background of the arrests, the police are appealing to citizens to desist from shielding criminals. The police are reminding citizens that harboring criminals endangers their lives and the lives of their loved ones, and derails the efforts of the police.
