G.S.U. Officer’s ‘Friend’ Provided Tip on Marijuana Plantation

Wilfred Elrington

Another major question being posed in the aftermath of Kelvin Usher’s disappearance and return is what business did the Gang Suppression Unit have in Lucky Strike on Sunday? It’s very name indicates that the G.S.U. has the narrow focus of undercutting gangs and criminal activity involving them, but very frequently in the past few years it has been used similar to the established anti-narcotics unit of the Police Department, and many of the elite tactical units are known to cross paths, if occasionally to work at cross purposes. In this case, the G.S.U.’s involvement, according to Home Affairs Minister Wilfred Elrington, was coincidental and resulted from a tip from a close informant.

“The information I got suggested that it was just by coincidence that the person who knew of the cultivation of the marijuana field, was a friend, it seems, to a fairly young member of the G.S.U., and he communicated that information to the G.S.U. I find that more and more citizens are in fact volunteering information to the police these days; it is something I think we want to encourage. But it was mere coincidence that in fact this particular member of the G.S.U. knew the person in Lucky Strike, and that person communicated with him and he took it from there.”
