Police say they erred in 5K reward statement

11

The police force has issued a “correction” to an earlier statement that it is offering 5 thousand dollars for information leading to the capture of Antigua’s most wanted Calvin Burga James.

Lawmen offered their “sincere apologies” to members of the media and public for the confusion.

They say the actual reward for Burga is 25 thousand dollars.

The fugitive is wanted in connection with two killings a week ago.

He was evaded police ever since the incident in which a man was also shot in the face.

Since the announcement of the reward earlier today the police have been strongly criticised for the size of the reward.

  1. Oh because i was saying i know a couple of poodles cost more than that…thanks for the clarification going on a hunt tomorrow 26500.00 for two dogs and a man could be a very good payday

  2. Don’t want to say it but I have to. THEM JUST DAMN LIE. THEM JUST SHAME THAT IT WAS AN OUTCRY OF DISGRACE SO THEY MAKE UP THE REWARD TO SROP THE SHAME FACE. MR RODNEY IS LIKE U DONT WANT THE JOB. YOU HAVE WADE AND THEM BIG BOYS UNDERMINING YOUR LEADERSHIP

  3. It’s sad that we need to offer a reward for a murderer on the loose, that people keep spotting. This reflects broken moral compasses of the people in this nation. What happened to doing the right thing just because it was the good and noble thing to do? Smh.

  4. Thanks for the clarification police much appreciated however I can understand a mistake between 5 000 and 50 000 but will not accept 5 000 and 25 000 ABSURD.

    Since you are in the talking mood and coming clean please address the following:
    1 what happened to the matter with the blind man in Barbuda.
    2 what happened to the case with the government money that was stolen from Mr Freeland car.
    3 what went wrong with the rape case involving the 13 yo child.
    4 what happened to the money from the Benefit concert.
    5 what happened to the sexual offense case involving a MP of parliament.
    6 How did the officer able to leave Antigua in the sexual offense case.
    7 what happened to the investigation into the passport office etc.
    8 what happen to the case with ANDREA HUGHES.
    9 what happened in the shoot out at BAY BIEW Lightfoot.
    10 what happened to the case where ihi files went missing.
    Start with these to build some confidence and support.

  5. Burga is well connected and downright brazen. He may very well let someone take him, still manage to get away scotch free because of corruption and share the loot.

  6. They had increase the reward to $25,000.00. That is not anything for anyone to risk their life to capture the worst murder the country of Antigua and Barbuda ever experience. The police department and the court make enough money in charging and convicted people for drugs especially to able to put the reward to $1 million.

  7. why do I get the feeling that this man is not even trying to hide. them police seriously afraid of this man so they would be glad for some one to do their job for them.
