The police are working to prevent retaliation following Sunday’s double murder
In April, Smith was charged with the crime of “being a member of a gang”. Investigators allege that the Placencia resident was a member of the Long Beach Crips Gang, also known as the Louis Bevans Crips Gang. According to police, given Smith’s alleged criminal connections they are anticipating retaliation. Police Press Officer, ASP Fitzroy Yearwood, says that the police have ramped up their efforts since Sunday’s double murder to prevent further bloodshed.
