The FBI shuttered its Kingston office in New York and moved staff and resources to the Albany offices, the Mid-Hudson News reports.

The move will make operations run more smoothly, said FBI spokesman Paul Holstein.

“The Albany division did not have any resources diverted away as part of the closing of this resident agency. These assets were merely reallocated within our division to be utilized more effectively and efficiently,” told the Mid-Hudson News. “One of the major issues when we look at an analysis to determine what resident agencies should be closed is to reduce internal costs to run it more efficiently and to use taxpayers’ money more effectively.”

WASHINGTON — Atty. Gen. Eric Holder Jr. commented Thursday on the deadly effort to extradite Jamaican kingpin Christopher “Dudus”  Coke, and offered condolences to the Jamaican people for “the loss of the citizens and law enforcement officials who have been killed.”

“As the Jamaican government seeks to uphold the rule of law, the United States stands in support of its efforts to ensure public safety and to combat drug trafficking and other criminal activity,” Holder said at a State Department function on Carribean-U.S. Security. “And we honor our brave law enforcement partners for their service, sacrifice, and commitment to the cause of justice.”

Jamaican soldiers and police have been battling with gunmen who have been fighting in Kingston to prevent the extradition of Coke to New York.  As of Thursday, about 70 people had been killed including three police officer, the Associated Press reported. It said 28 police officers had been wounded.

“As we continue to monitor events in Jamaica, let me assure each of you that this effort is a top priority, not only for the Department of Justice, but also for the Departments of State, Homeland Security and Defense. And we are all proud to call you our partners.”
