(CMR) A Jamaican man who was arrested by the Cayman Islands police last week is considered one of the most wanted criminals in St Catherine, Jamaica, the Jamaica Constabulary Force has said.
Rudolph Shaw (30), otherwise called ‘Boxer' or ‘Boxa,' is wanted in connection with multiple murders and several incidents of shootings in St. Catherine. He has also been linked to the recent flare-up of violence in Spanish Town.
The JCF said Shaw was previously pursued in Jamaica by the Joint Anti-Gang Task Force (JAGTF) and other Police units but managed to elude capture.
After pursuing several lines of investigation, in addition to boosting public awareness through social media publications, information was received that Shaw was in the Cayman Islands. This was a collaborative process, which ultimately led to his capture, the JCF stated.
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service reported that shortly before 12.30 pm last Friday, 8 July, they arrested Shaw in the vicinity of Seymour Road, George Town. Firearms Response Unit officers in a marked service vehicle approached a vehicle with two occupants.
The vehicle's occupants attempted to evade the police and rammed into the police vehicle, causing their vehicle to become disabled. Police captured the wanted man, while the other man escaped on foot.
