Dancehall producer Linval ‘Shab Don’ Thompson, who is known for his work with Squash and Vybz Kartel, has been taken into custody by the Joint Anti-Gang Task Force.
The police announced he was detained during an operation in the St. Catherine South Division yesterday.
The police say Shab Don has been identified as a person of interest in a triple muder matter under investigation in Rose Heights, St. James.
Shab Don, whose given name is Linval Thompson Jr., was charged with breaching the Corruption Prevention Act last October.
When he appeared in the Kingston & St Andrew Parish Court last month his bail was extended to June 9.
It’s alleged that Shab Don offered a policeman two million dollars to remove an illegal firearm from his vehicle before it was searched
