Three of Mavado's associates released, son still in custody

Three of the four suspects who were being investigated in connection with the upsurge in violence in Cassava Piece, St. Andrew, have been released.
The men, who are family members and associates of dancehall entertainer, Mavado, were released on the weekend.
Despite the men being released, news came on Monday that the entertainer's 17 year old son remains in custody, as cops investigate recent cases of murder and shootings in Cassava Piece.
Five men, including Mavado's son, were picked up at his Norbrook, St. Andrew residence last Tuesday.
The cops have sent out an advisory urging Mavado to report to them for questioning in connection with the violence in Cassava Piece.
He is currently overseas.
His attorneys are reportedly making arrangements for his return.
Superintendent Glenford Miller, head of the St. Andrew North Police, has warned that investigators will not wait indefinitely for the artiste to surrender to them.
In the meantime, Chase Cross, one of the five individuals detained last week, was re-arrested on Monday after being released on bond on Friday.
Chase Cross, whose given name is Sameer Coombs, was charged with assaulting Anthony Goulbourne, the man charged with shooting at Mavado on June 2.
Following the attack on Mavado, the police imposed a curfew in Cassava Piece after rival gunmen in the area began trading bullets.
