Update: Head of the constabulary Corporate Communications Unit, Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay, has confirmed that there is a wanted notice out for Alkaline and that he should report to the police by 5 PM on Wednesday. If he fails to report to cops, a warrant could be issued for his arrest.
Original: Alkaline is now a wanted man as police seek the dancehall star in connection with a recent murder in Jamaica.
The Vendetta head is required to report to the Harman Barracks police station by 5 PM on Wednesday (Feb 8). The Jamaica Constabulary Force broke the news on its official Twitter page late Tuesday evening. “Police are seeking Earlan Bartley o/c Alkaline for questioning in relation to a murder. He is to report to Harman Barracks by 5:00 p.m., Feb 8,” the JCF tweeted.
Alkaline, whose real name is Earlan Bartley, is currently one of the hottest artists in dancehall. Cops believe the deejay can assist them in their investigation into the murder of Morris who was shot and killed last month. No further details were released regarding the investigation.
It’s not uncommon for dancehall artists to be wanted by police in connection to crimes in Jamaica. In fact, just last month Tommy Lee Sparta was wanted in relation to a shooting incident in his native Flanker in Montego Bay. The former Gaza deejay says that police is just targeting him because of his image.
