Rodney

Police Commissioner Atlee Rodney says there are no solid leads into the whereabouts of fugitives Calvin “Burger” James and Anthony “Thug life” Govia.

“I don’t know where they are,” Rodney told reporters as the police took questions at their end of year news conference on Monday.

He said he cannot say whether the wanted men are in Antigua and Barbuda because “we have not been successful in locating them.”

Rodney said lawmen receive information from time to time but it has not been enough to locate the men.

Thug Life has been on the run since he allegedly robbed the Carlisle Bay Hotel, Old Road, on June 30 of approximately $60 thousand.

Since October 2018, Burger has been evading police who want him in connection with a double murder.

Regional government are on the lookout for the two men. A reward is also being offered for their capture.

Shakema Charles of St. Johnston’s village who was also wanted by the police for alleged fraud offences surrendered on Monday.

  1. ABSOLUTE TRUTH

    Not sure the reporter got it right. Regional Governments ‘…do not look out for fugitives.’
    Do know that some have caused their extradition when formal requests are made.

    Also know that the function of ‘…Law enforcement’ is to locate and apprehend them.

    If a Commissioner knows where ‘…fugitives from justice’ are hiding out or have sought haven, if within the jurisdiction, he most certainly would cause him to be apprehended.

    If outside, then he seeks assistance from counterparts, regionally and internationally.

    If he do not know, he shall, with consistent forthrightness, speak the ‘…Absolute Truth.’ When this is done, there may be no need for ‘…clarifications.’
    A Commissioner knows that he still has the responsibility to ultimately bring them to justice.

    Respect and support of the citizenry are most essential. They shall seek, now more than ever, to earn and garner these.

    Good luck to the ‘…agency, its leadership and rank and file members.’
