‘Transporter’, accomplice detained
Ministry of Health fire…
Police have held two more suspects in connection with last year’s attacks on two state buildings and two police stations.
A police official identified the detained men as Basil Andre Morgan, also known as ‘Mr. Brown, and Anthony Reginald, known as ‘Tupac’.
The official said that Morgan is suspected to be one of the people who transported the gang during the torching of the Ministry of Health buildings, the arson attempt at the Supreme Court and the attacks on the Brickdam Police Station and East Ruimveldt Outpost.
The 2009 attacks culminated in the kidnapping of gold miner Wodette Roberts called ‘Buckman’, who subsequently died from suffocation.
Both men, who are in their twenties, are likely to face several charges, including murder and arson.
Kaieteur News was told that they have admitted to participating in the gang’s 2009 activities.
Several persons have now been charged in connection with what has been deemed to be attacks against the state.
They include alleged gunman, Colin Jones, and his 17-year-old brother; a woman who allegedly cooked for the gang, and three members of an Amelia’s Ward, Linden family.
Colin Jones was charged shortly after leading police to two shallow graves that contained the bodies of gang members Kurt Thierens and Adriano Tracey.
The Guyana Police Force has reportedly asked the International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL) to help track down ex- GDF lieutenant George Lashley and Keith Ferrier. The two men are said to be the brains behind the gang.
Lashley is believed to be in the United States, while Ferrier, called ‘General’ is also believed to be overseas.
The ex-soldier is said to be around 60, and also resided at Lot 187 Freeman Street, East La Penitence.
