KINGSTON – A music video, which has been uploaded on YouTube , entitled Vybz Kartel, Masicka – Infrared (Official video) , has caught the attention of the Jamaica Constabulary Force as well as the Firearms Licensing Authority (FLA).
The video begins by featuring skimpily clad girls on a yacht, before segueing to a scene with other individuals, one dressed in a security guard’s uniform in the process of planning what appears to be a robbery with others.
The video also features an armoured truck being robbed with a display of bullets and high-powered weapons, and a security guard being placed in the back of the vehicle, before returning to a beach scene with people having fun.
The Jamaica Observer understands that the FLA is particularly interested in the armoured truck, guns and bullets, and as such has launched an investigation from last Thursday into the matter. It is further understood that the armoured vehicle used in the video has already been located, while sustained efforts are being made to identify the source of the guns.
This is the second video, which, in recent days, has sparked interest from the authorities.
In the Sunday Observer the police confirmed that a top-level investigation had been started into a music video showing individuals smoking ganja, brazenly toting guns, and a scene in which a woman performs explicit sexual acts after disrobing from what seems to be a police uniform.
In addition, there are others in that video dressed in police uniforms.
The video, which features dancehall artiste Alkaline, also shows what appears to be a marked police vehicle.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Clifford Blake, in giving an update, said yesterday that the investigation ordered by Commissioner of Police George Quallo is swiftly progressing.
“Without giving names or the names of places, I can confirm that we have identified the police personnel [in the video] and will be strictly following our well documented internal procedures as we quickly move the investigation forward.
“Further, I can inform that we have ascertained that the vehicle in the video is a police vehicle, and we have also found out which section of the force this marked police vehicle was assigned and will be dealing with that matter also using our internal procedures,” DCP Blake told the Observer.
