ONE of the alleged members of the Uchence Wilson Gang reportedly told police that he was being set-up and that he had dreamt that he was either going to prison or be killed.

An assistant superintendent who was among a group of officers who had arrested the accused, Odeen “Brink” Smith and others, yesterday made the revelation during her testimony before Chief Justice Bryan Sykes in the Home Circuit Court.

According to the witness, the accused, who was picked up at his home on December 2, 2017, in Clarendon, was cautioned about the comments he made but did not heed the warning.

“Me know that from me hand over the guns that me either a go dead or go a prison, me dream it, me a tell yuh dis, dis yah whole thing a set-up,” the officer read from her note book.

“The man a set-up police fi kill me, di same man wey carry we in fi the gun a him same one carry it come gimme, so me couldn’t tell unuh say it neva deh deh,” the witness continued after she told the court that she could not remember everything that Brinks had told her and would rather to look back at the notes she had written.

Remarks about being set-up, the witness said, were made by the accused while he was being transported to Kingston in the back of the service vehicle.

According to the witness, Smith who continued talking, was told by a police officer that they were doing an investigation and hence why he was being taken to Kingston

Earlier during the trial, another police witness testified that he and a team of officers went to a location in Cedar Valley, St Catherine on July 17, 2017, where they observed a number of motor vehicle parts, including car seat and radios, in bushes.

The witness also told the court that personal documents, including a certificate for a woman, was found along with a cup from which he had swabbed for DNA.

Pictures of the scene and motor vehicle parts were then shown to the court as well as the cup that the police officer had swabbed, which contained a liquid which appeared to be alcohol.

The witness further testified that he had placed the DNA swab in a sealed bag and have kept it in his possession since.

Uchence “Terrence” Wilson, the alleged leader of the gang, which reportedly terrorised people in St Catherine, St Andrew, Clarendon, St Mary, and St Ann, along with 23 alleged gang members including Wilson’s girlfriend Shantol Gordon, the gang’s second in command Fitzroy Scott, three other women, and a police corporal, are being tried for various offences under the Criminal Justice (Suppression of Criminal Organisations) Act, commonly referred to as the Anti-Gang Legislation.

The trial will resume on Monday.
