ANOTHER of the six men for whom the Police recently issued a wanted notice urging that they turn themselves over to the Police, is in police custody.

A release issued by the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) said the wanted fugitive Anthony Charles aka “Kussum”, 42, was apprehended yesterday in Buxton, East Coast Demerara (ECD), after “a lively two-minute chase” by an Army vehicle patrol that is part of the joint Army/Police operation in the community.

According to the release, the patrol was returning from the scene where a female resident of the area was reportedly being assaulted, and her husband threatened by a gun-toting male, when Charles, who was in a yard along Church of God Road south of the Railway Embankment, spotted the vehicle and started running.

He was challenged by the soldiers and ordered to stop but continued to run. He stopped when a warning shot was fired in the air.

Following his apprehension, a search was conducted on his person but no weapon was found. He was subsequently handed over to the police at Vigilance Police Station.

The wanted bulletin issued by the Police on Wednesday, June 11, said Charles was being sought in connection with a series of robbery under arms and kidnapping. Additionally, 10 arrest warrants were issued for him for a multiplicity of offences, including possession of firearm without license, possession of ammunition without license, malicious damage to property, inflicting grievous bodily harm, and larceny in dwelling house.

Charles’ last known address is Bachelors Adventure, ECD, the release added.

On Saturday morning, Ivor Glen, who was named among the six, surrendered at Wales Police Station, West Bank Demerara (WBD). He was accompanied by Attorney-at-Law Nigel Hughes and Executive Producer/Editor of Prime News Kaieteur News Editor Adam Harris.

Still at large and described by the Police as “armed and dangerous” is Troy Dick, the lone surviving fugitive from the Mash Day jailbreak.

The others on the wanted list are Rondell Rollins called “Fineman”; Michael Anthony Sandiford a.k.a. “Rastaman” and “Mo Fire” and Paul Pindletona.k.a. “Serra man”.
