The Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime (C-TOC) Division of the Jamaica Constabulary Force has arrested two more members of the Uchance gang.

The man and a woman were taken into custody on Tuesday.

This brings to 29 the number of arrests of alleged Uchance gang members.

A police corporal was among 15 persons arrested on the weekend by C-TOC.

On Tuesday, C-TOC reported that the St Catherine-based gang has been linked to a number of murders, shootings, robberies and rapes across several parishes.

C-TOC claimed that the 40-member gang has stolen more than $400 million in goods.

The alleged members are set to face a series of identification parades in the next few weeks.
