Alleged members of Ranko Gang to reappear in court on January 11

The alleged leader of the Clarendon-based Ranko Gang, Constable Tafari Silvera, and his co-accused are to reappear in the Home Circuit Court on January 11, 2024, for further case management hearing.
 
The Ranko Gang, which has been linked to 17 incidents, is alleged to have been involved in shootings, burglary, robbery with aggravation, illegal possession of firearm, shopbreaking, conspiracy to murder, and abduction.
 
The offences were allegedly carried out in Clarendon, Manchester, St Elizabeth, St Catherine, St Mary, Trelawny, Kingston, St Andrew, and St James from 2019 to 2021.
 
Among the other members of the gang before the court are police constables Daneilio Barnes, Rajay Morrison, and Tehneil Francis.
 
Jassette Brown, the lone female in the group, Barnes and Morrison had their bail extended while Ovilgo McKenzie, who was previously granted bail, is yet to take up the offer.
 
Tevin Henriques was further remanded.
 
Constable Silvera was first arrested in June 2021 following allegations that he had hired two hitmen to murder a police informant from Clarendon.
 
He was subsequently charged in that matter, along with two civilians, Christopher Robinson and Mark Bennett. 
 
They are all facing charges of conspiracy to murder in a separate case.
