Jerreal Missick, 22, and Shaquaze Forbes, 21, both residents of Over Back, Grand Turk, are set to appear before a Magistrate to face charges related to firearm offences.


The two are charged with gang membership, possession of a firearm, possession of ammunition and discharging a firearm.

 

The charges stem from an investigation into a firearm discharge incident that occurred on February 13th, 2024, in the Over Back area. Both individuals were charged under the Anti-Gang Ordinance (2022) following collaboration between law enforcement and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.


Superintendent Dean Holden, Head of Crime, Safeguarding, and Public Protection, emphasized the police force's commitment to tackling gang-related crimes and the illicit use of firearms.


He stated, "This is another example of the Police Force's relentless pursuit of those suspected to be involved in gang-related crime, specifically the criminal use of illegal firearms. This latest charge also demonstrates our continued use of the Anti-Gang legislation to target individuals who cause harm to our communities."


In the meantime, the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force (RTCIPF) is urging the public to report any information related to illegal activities. People are encouraged to contact the nearest police station, call 911, reach out to the Serious Crime Unit at 231-1842, or utilize Crime Stoppers at 1-800-8477 to provide information anonymously.


Additionally, individuals can use the CrimeStoppers P3 app, available on the Google Play store or Apple Apps, to share information confidentially. The police are relying on community support to ensure the safety and well-being of the residents.
