Three men further charged in alleged murder-for-hire plot

The three persons accused of being contract killers, who were captured on the compound of the Petrojam oil refinery last November, have been charged for the alleged murder plot.
 
The men were originally charged in November with Possession of a Prohibited Weapon after they were caught lurking in the car park of the refinery with two illegal guns.
 
But Senior Superintendent Michael Phipps, commanding officer for the Kingston Western Police, told Radio Jamaica News, on the weekend, that the men have now also been charged with Conspiracy to Murder following a top level investigation.
 
They were charged last week, he revealed.
 
The accused are 22 year-old Ryan Morrison, construction worker of Belvedere District, St Andrew; Nicholas Freeman, 29, and 22 year-old Ackeem Moore, both of Pleasant Heights, Rockfort in St Andrew.
 
It was reported that on November 23, the police swooped down on the Petrojam car park after being informed that men were seen lurking on the compound in a Toyota Yaris motor vehicle. 
 
An investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division, revealed that the men had been hired to kill a senior employee at the refinery.
