A policeman is among three people arrested and charged under the anti-gang law for alleged involvement in the guns for drugs trade between Jamaica and Haiti.

Police Constable Kenneth Reid was charged yesterday with being a member of a criminal organisation and providing a benefit to a criminal organisation.

The other persons charged with being members of a criminal organisation are Kitson Town, St. Catherine residents Sheldon Walters otherwise called 'Termite' and Kerry-Ann Smith.

The police say Walters is also known to be a significant member of one of the major gangs operating in St. Catherine.

The police allege that on various dates, the suspects conspired to engage in the infamous drugs for guns trade between criminal elements in Haiti and Jamaica.

The accused were picked up by the Police in St Catherine and Red Hills, St Andrew. 

They are scheduled to appear before the Half Way Tree Resident Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
