Detectives assigned to the Savanna-la-Mar Criminal Investigation Branch in Westmoreland have levelled multiple charges against one of the parish’s most wanted men.

He is Davion Brown, otherwise called ‘Balti’ of a Savanna-la-Mar address.

Brown was arrested by the Police on December 15 following an operation in Grange Hill in the parish.

The police say a pistol with five rounds of ammunition was also found in his possession.

In August, Brown was named as wanted for the murder of 22-year-old Ocielle Hall on Great Georges Street in Westmoreland and in September he allegedly engaged lawmen in a confrontation, during their attempt to apprehend him.

The police say Brown was interviewed in the presence of his lawyer and was formally charged with murder, shooting with intent and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

The police say detectives continue to follow strong leads on other cases where they consider Brown to  have been a major player.

They are appealing to the public to share information on crimes which Brown may have committed.

He is scheduled to appear before the Westmoreland Parish Court on January 9, 2018.
