Three suspects charged in relation to the abduction of two men from their Kirkland Heights, St Andrew premises one month ago, are to face the courts on Thursday.

Twenty-seven-year-old businessman, Curtis Martin, and 25-year-old University of Technology graduate, Mario Daley, were abducted from their home at gunpoint on October 21.

The police say there is still no information to suggest the whereabouts of the men.

Last week Dionne Mitchell and Damion Lawrence from Papine, St Andrew and Evon Simmonds from a Waterhouse address in Kingston, were charged with robbery with aggravation and illegal possession of a firearm.

An additional charge of illegal possession of firearm was brought against Simmonds, after a weapon was found at his house.

They are booked to appear before the Corporate Area Gun Court in downtown, Kingston.

The police have said additional charges are expected to be brought against the three.

The suspects were held following several raids across Kingston, St Andrew and St Catherine last month.

The police have been working with overseas partners to nab the alleged mastermind, who is a Jamaican businessman.

Investigators have said the businessman offered $300,000 for the men’s abduction.
