Commander for the area three police Assistant commissioner George Quallo says the police will continue to search until alleged gangster 'Duppy Film' is found.

Last week 'Duppy Film' whose real name is Marlon Perry managed to elude members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force and the Jamaica Defence Force who were seeking to capture him in a major joint operation in the Harbour View area of St Andrew.

However, one of his cronies was killed in the operation and another taken into custody.

ACP Quallo says he cannot disclose any information about the man taken into custody at this time.

He also declined to comment on the progress of the search for Perry, but insisted the police would not stop until the gangster is found.

Duppy Film has been implicated in the December 2015 murders of Corporal Kenneth Davis and Constable Craig Palmer at a shop on the Poor Man's Corner main road in St Thomas.

The reward for information leading to Perry's capture has been increased to $1.5 million.
