As the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) continues its ‘Wanted Wednesdays’ campaign, a St. James wanted man who was featured on our platforms on Wednesday, May 12, was captured in St. Thomas earlier today.
He is 31-year-old Sanjae Hodari Nelson, otherwise called ‘Odari’.
Nelson was wanted for the Murder of 23-year old Lincoln Atkinson in Backwood district, Pimento Hill in St. James on September 13, 2016.
Reports are that about 5:45 p.m., Atkinson was at home when he was pounced upon by armed assailant/s who opened gunfire hitting him multiple times. He was pronounced dead at hospital.
Intensive investigations led to Nelson being identified as a wanted person in relation to Atkinson’s murder. Hence he was featured in the JCF’s ‘Wanted Wednesdays’ campaign. Intelligence led the St. Thomas Police to an area of Leith Hall in the parish however, Nelson was not found. He was handed over to the Police by a minister of religion today.
