The deceased who has been identified so far only as “Kerr-Jarrett”, is said to have been a notorious serial robber who is responsible for a number of robberies and break-ins committed around Montego Bay, for some time now.
It is said that the deceased would strike late at nights and steal anything that he can find at garages, construction sites, parking lots, shops, stalls, supermarkets and stores.
Reports by the Barnett Street police are that about 4:30 a.m., a security team was alerted that a robbery was taking place at a construction site along River Bay Road.
