Councillor for the Claremont Division in the St Ann Municipal Corporation (SAMC), Lambert Weir, is calling on the police to take action now to prevent crime becoming a “monster” in a small section of his division.
Mr Weir says some developments in the Steerfield area worry him and he wants them addressed now. He said there was squatting developing in that area and some strange people were turning up there. Also, he said recently, there was gunfire coming from the area.
He called on the commanding police officer for St Ann, SSP Calvin Small, to increase patrols in the area and put an end to squatting.
