Residents of North Leeward did their civic duty when they nabbed two men wanted in connection with the murder of slain police constable Elson Richardson.

The men, Earlando Lampkin and Shaun George, were caught on two separate occasions in North Leeward by residents who thought that the men were attracting too much police attention to the area.{{more}}

The men’s capture brings to six the number of persons charged with the 41-year-old Barrouallie resident’s murder. He was killed on November 14th.

The others are Luther Badnock, a 20-year-old Dasent Cottage man; Randy Shallow, 18, of Lowmans Hill, Earl

Jack, 17, of Redemption Sharpes and a 14-year-old student.

Lampkin and George were remanded when they appeared before the Serious Offences Court. George appeared before the court on Tuesday.

Court prosecutor, Sergeant Adolphus Delpesche, has requested a period of three months before the start of preliminary inquiries, on the grounds that police were seeking forensic analysis on some evidence; as a result the men return to court for preliminary inquiries on February 21, 2005.

Richardson’s body was found at Belle Vue on the Windward side of the island on Sunday, November 21. His burnt car was discovered that day in Clare Valley on the Leeward side of the island.
