MONTEGO BAY, St James-The St James police have released a list of the 10 most wanted persons in the parish.
The list is headed by Delano Wilmott who goes by the alias “Lano” and “Prekeh Bwoy”.
Wilmot, who is of Mother Lane, Retrieve, in Cambridge, St James, is wanted for the 2016 murder of Mark Williams in the community.
According to the police, Wilmot, was a key player in the notorious Ratty Gang and was involved in the shooting of two members of the Jamaica Defence Force in St James in 2017.
The Ratty Gang was led by Ryan Peterkin, who was cut down in a shootout with members of the security forces.
