The police have revealed they have two suspects in custody who are to be questioned this afternoon in relation to last week’s abduction of two men from their Kirkland Heights, St Andrew premises.

Twenty-seven-year-old businessman, Curtis Martin, and 25-year-old University of Technology graduate, Mario Daley, were abducted from their home at gunpoint about 8:30 last week Monday evening.

A female was found tied up.

The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre understands that the two suspects have been in police custody since Sunday.

A police source says the cooperation of the two suspects could result in a major breakthrough in the abduction case.

They are to be questioned in the presence of their attorneys.

The police had indicated they were pursuing at least four persons, including a woman, in relation to the case.

The police have revealed that the abduction may have been ordered.

And they have reportedly enlisted the Jamaica Defence Force as they pursue the investigation.

Daley graduated from UTech last year, and is an employee at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, while Martin is the manager of CJM Metals in St Andrew.

Daley’s mother, Monica Brooks, has made a tearful plea to the abductors, urging them to release both men.

The police are asking anyone with information on the men’s whereabouts to contact the Red Hills Police at 945-8270, the Constant Spring Police at 924-1425 or the nearest police station.
