MANDEVILLE, Manchester — The alleged leader of the Greyground gang Rohan “Boomhead” Smiley has been charged by the Mandeville police with conspiracy to murder.

Smiley, who was charged on Wednesday, has been in police custody since last Friday following an operation in Greyground, Manchester.

On Monday, the Mandeville police CIB reportedly received two calls from a male who they said issued death threats if Smiley was not released from custody.

In an interview with the Jamaica Observer, head of the Manchester police Superintendent Wayne Cameron, said Smiley was “questioned in the presence of his attorney and at about 4:00 pm the investigating officer charged (him) with conspiracy to murder. This is in relation to the murder that was committed in the Mandeville market on Christmas Eve”.

That murder of 22-year-old vendor Richard Howard has resulted in two men previously being charged.

Smiley is scheduled to appear in the Manchester Parish Court on Thursday, January 31, 2019.

“In the meantime, we are continuing the work on other murder cases as we think he can assist us,” Cameron stated.

He added that police assigned to the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch are assisting the Manchester police “in putting a file together in relation to Mr Smiley leading a gang in this parish, under the anti-gang legislation”.
