Home invasion


Share post:

ST MICHAEL businessman Ricardo Gittens doesn’t mince his words when it comes to the response of the authorities to a long-standing environmental nuisance next door.

“Them gonna wait until somebody come to rob me, the same way them rob my friend Stan and kill he, and how they target other business people,” he said. “Then the police will come with a tape and carry out investigations . . . and I am a statistic.”

Gittens told the DAILY NATION he had been badgering the Environmental Health Department to force his mechanic neighbor to remove more than a dozen derelict vehicles stored on lots adjacent to his home at Oxley Road, Clevedale Road in Black Rock.

He charged that environmental health officers at the Branford Taitt Polyclinic had sat on the issue even though he had been seeking their assistance for more than ten years.
