The St James police say one of Area One’s most wanted men was charged with two counts of murder and one count of wounding with intent on Saturday.

He is 27-year-old Kirk Stevens, otherwise called ‘Wanka’ or ‘Shattam’,  a music producer of Flankers or Guango Crescent, in St James.

The charges were laid after Stevens reported to the police about 6 o' clock on Saturday morning in the company of his lawyer.  

His court date is to be announced at a later date.

The police also say two persons from the most wanted list, which was published by the JCF in January 2017, have surrendered peacefully and are in safe custody.

The police are encouraging persons identified as wanted, as well as their relatives or friends who may know of their whereabouts, to contact the nearest police station, Crime Stop at 311, 811, the Stay Alert App or have a pastor or a Justice of the Peace accompany them to the nearest police station.
