Several residents on Princess Street in Kingston were left panicking yesterday after two gunmen walked into a home demanding cash, gold and other valuables.


Interestingly, THE STAR understands that one of the hoodlums had time enough to use one of the residents bathroom before exiting the premises.


The incident happened around 5:30 p.m.


THE STAR understands that the men, posing with their weapons, spent about 20 minutes at the home asking the whereabouts of some men, before making their requests for cash, jewellery and other valuables.


It is reported that the men eventually left the premises after their requests were not met.


“I am not keeping well, and I am not well at all and this incident just mek mi feel traumatised, an elderly woman who was shaken up because of the incident said.


Another resident told THE STAR that she had to hide under her bed during the ordeal, “Dem did a search up di place for about 20 minutes before dem leave, and I don’t know what dem want . First, me hear dem a ask if some man live here but I tink dem did a use dat as a sham to rob people,” the resident said.


The Kingston Central police are investigating the incident.



Silly car thieves.

Two men who stole a policeman‘s car in Ewarton, St Catherine, yesterday morning were arrested hours later after unknowingly trying to sell it to the cop.

The men’s names are being withheld pending charges.

The police said about 1 a.m. the car, a Nissan B13, was stolen from beside a community centre. A report was made to the Ewarton police.

About two hours later, a policeman from the station received a text from someone offering a B13 for sale. The description fitted the one reported stolen.

Contact was made with the car’s owner who had reported the theft and a sting operation was set up. The owner contacted the number and expressed interest in buying the car. The sellers were advised where to meet their ‘customer’.

When they turned up with the stolen car, members of the Region Five Operation and Support Team accosted and arrested them.

The police said further investigations are being done to ascertain if the men are part of a car-stealing ring in the area.

Pepper spray attack on top Brighton jeweller

A top jeweller clung onto thousands of pounds worth of gems – despite being overpowered with pepper spray.

The victim, 64-year-old Paul Goble, was walking with a friend in The Lanes, Brighton, when he was pounced on by two men.

They blasted Mr Goble and his 23-year-old female friend with pepper spray, which can cause temporary blindness, and made a grab for his bag containing jewellery.

But despite this – and pepper spray being marketed as a deterrent against muggers – Mr Goble clung onto his wares.
Yesterday (April 16) Mr Goble was not at work but a friend issued a statement on his behalf.

She said: “We working really closely with the police.

“We have got great CCTV images and there were eye-witnesses.

“Hopefully these people will be caught.”

The terrifying incident took place just yards from his shop, Paul Goble’s Jeweller’s, in Meeting House Lane.

Mr Goble was approached between 4.30pm and 4.45pm on Friday, April 12.


A fellow jeweller said: “I just heard that someone jumped out at Paul and sprayed him with pepper spray. It’s shocking.”

Stuart Wilkie, who owns a shop in The Lanes, said: “It’s not nice when anyone gets attacked.
“Jewellery is high-end and easy to melt down or eventually sell on.

“Hopefully this is a one-off incident.”

He added that security in The Lanes, and particularly Meeting House Lane, was good.

A Sussex Police spokesman confirmed the attack occurred.

‘Brave efforts’

A spokesman said: “The two suspects demanded that the victims hand over a bag which contained several thousand pounds worth of jewellery.

“They refused and were sprayed in their faces with what is believed to be pepper spray.

“Due to the brave efforts of the woman, the couple managed to keep hold of the bag and the suspects ran off empty-handed.

“The couple washed the fluid, which did cause them some discomfort, from their faces |and did not suffer any lasting injury.

“Both suspects are described as white.”

Sussex Police is appealing for witnesses and anyone with information should contact 101.

When I was drinking, my attitude was totally selfish, self-centered, my pleasure and my comfort came first. Now that I am sober, self-seeking has started to slip away.


My whole attitude toward life and other people is changing. For me, the first “A” in our name stands for attitude. My attitude is changed by the second “A” in our name which stands for action.


By working the Steps, attending meetings,and carrying the message, I can be restored to sanity. Action is the magic word! With a positive, helpful attitude and regular A.A. action, I can stay sober and help others to achieve sobriety.


My attitude now is that I am willing to go to any length to stay sober!

Recently I had a conversation with Sameer Verma of San Francisco State University about an innovative venture he’s involved with — the One Laptop per Child project. Verma, an open source software (OSS) activist, was invited by Professor Evan Duggan, Executive Director of the Mona School of Business and new Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of the West Indies, Mona, whom he went to school with, to spearhead the OLPC project in Jamaica. According to the OLPC Jamaica website:

OLPC Jamaica is a general interest group for the One Laptop per Child initiatives in Jamaica. The group started at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona Campus, Jamaica on 5th September, 2008. Compelled by the belief that the OLPC has considerable potential for enhancing the efficient delivery, and improved Pedagogy in early childhood education in Jamaica, OLPC Jamaica intends to foster interest, generate ideas…

The researcher who claim that only men who cheated offer to do the hoovering, is he, she or they just talking from their own experience or what as I certainly no cheat and so are many more men out there.
I do my cleaning, cooking, washing and help with my little girl from time to time, therefore I would like to know where did they get that stupid ideology nonsense from.
Why is it people have to come up with some form of crop to make money, silly findings I guess.
