The police have made a major dent in the problem of combatting crime in the Spanish Town area as Andre ‘Black Man’ Bryan, one of St Catherine’s most wanted men, is now in police custody.

Bryan, otherwise called Black Man, was arrested on Wednesday during a police operation in the Jones Avenue area of Spanish Town.

The police said a 9mm Smith & Wesson firearm was recovered during the operation. Several other men were also arrested.

Bryan, who the police had listed as a person of interest, spent eight years in prison before he was acquitted late last year of killing former chairman of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company Douglas Chambers.
