'Sizzla' continues to be grilled by police
published: Saturday | March 19, 2005

Glenroy Sinclair, Staff Reporter

DETECTIVES ATTACHED to Operation Kingfish were kept busy yesterday interrogating the controversial dancehall artiste, Miguel Collins, alias 'Sizzla'. He was being questioned along with five other detainees who were picked up in August Town, St. Andrew on Thursday, following a major gun find.

Head of Operation Kingfish, Assistant Commissioner Glenmore Hinds, said the police have intensified their investigations into the massive arms haul.

"What I can tell you is that 'Sizzla' is still being interrogated as we speak," said ACP Hinds.

On Thursday, a joint police/-military operation in the August Town area, known as 'Sizzla Corner' was raided and 13 high-powered weapons were found in a fowl coop, near a house occupied by one of the entertainer's relatives. Other contraband found included magazines for various weapons, ammunition and ballistic vests.

Reports are that the guns were discovered in a large, rectangular looking, black leather bag with a piano keyboard. The bag was dug from beneath the earth. Up to late yesterday evening nobody was charged in connection with the seizure of the guns.

The Gleaner has learnt further that the police and military revisited the area yesterday, searching for more guns. Reports are that the lawmen have expressed an interest in speaking with the owner of the fowl coop, who is said to be a close relative of the entertainer.

The police say Thursday's gun find is a big dent in the activities of the 'Judgement Yard Gang'.
