Escaped Prisoner May Be Updating His Facebook

July 14, 2010

Alvone MAYBURY [large](Updated) 24 year old Alvone Maybury who dramatically escaped from Prison Officer`s custody outside of Magistrates Court may possibly be updating his Facebook while on the run, with at least 7 messages posted so far, most within the last few minutes this morning (July 14.)

Yesterday the escapee was being escorted from Court after facing three gun charges when he made a break for it, and ran off down Parliament Street while still handcuffed. Police confirmed with us at 10:15am this morning that he is still at large.

All the posts are being made by a cell phone. The last message on his account was posted literally 1 minute prior to the post (around 9:30am) and initially said: Is sayin, I’ma tv star now, and he then goes on to continue.

Five hours previously, the account posted: Is sayin, I’m just chillin playin p.s3. Lol.

The first post on the Facebook account appeared approximately 10 hours ago (about 11:30pm last night) and said: Is sayin, just let me be, f-vk jail n all the people who run it.

Most of those also posting seem in support of Mr. Maybury, with various anti Police slurs posted. He has been warned by a few posters to stay off the computer. Whether it is truly the escaped prisoner posting to the account or whether someone else has access to his password has yet to be determined. We are awaiting a Police statement on the matter now.

Update 10:42am: Another post was made about 3 minutes ago.

Update 11:25am: Profile is now coming up as unavailable at this time, the reason why (technical glitch, self-deleted, law enforcement etc) is unclear.

Update 11:43am: His page is back up

Update 11:50am: Another post appeared saying Can`t say much

Update 12:15: Yet another post appeared, making 13 total so far since the escape about 26 hours ago…

Update 1:20pm: Another post was made

Update 3:00pm: Another post was made

Update 4:20pm: We sent a message to the account on Facebook…and got two responses, the last one said: I ain’t trying to go back to dat hell hole. they act like all of us there are dogs or something. I told them the other day what happens to a dog that’s in a cage all day. When you let him out he ain,t gonna kno how to act. I’m sick of eattin dinner at 4, or being lock down all day. I hope some one pops me in my face b4 they catch me.

The link to Alvone Maybury`s page is here.(We advise you to look quickly, as presently the account is set to public viewing, and we have noticed often after we post a Facebook page link of a criminal suspect, the page is quickly set to private. Please note there is a lot of profanity on the page, so be warned)

    Hope they trace that IP address. The police are silly.

  2. Nicole says:

    I meant to say “aren’t” silly. I’m silly! lol

  3. Dawnette Bean says:

    Just a clearer picture of the sick individuals this island is dealing with and being influenced by family,friends both here and overseas.

  4. Define Stupid says:

    Wow – unbelievable that he thinks posting on an open FB page is smart. Even more unbelievable is the number of persons willing to comment and support him. Talk about giving yourselves up to the police for questioning… Duh! Oh, and one more thing – if you look back, you can see he was updating his FB from jail via mobile upload. Shouldn’t prisoners be denied access to mobile phones and the internet?

  5. Deez Nutz!!!! says:

    R you f@#$#@ kiddin me !!! 5 min of fame then your forgotton!!! Can anyone say DUMAS!!! In other words Dumb ASS!!!

  6. Andrew says:

    Idiot.

  7. Not Surprised!! says:

    I’m not the slightest bit surprised by this. I’ve known the individual for years. We went to school together from little kids. He’s always had a few screws loose. I dont feel sorry for him at all though. He’s always had opportunity to turn bad into good, but always chose the bad. He’s had help but he chose not to utilize it. How much more concern can you show for a 24 year old that doesn’t show any for himself? I just hope they catch him as soon as possible. Once all the people like him are taken from society, then we can all live again.

  8. Wow! says:

    WOW!!! How stupid can he be! It shows that Bermuda is being effected by a bunch of dumbass, with not many brain cells between them. The fact that his friends are even commenting on is Facebook page. Ding! Ding! I hope they are not surprised when the police come knocking on their door because of their association with an escaped felon! They’ll come and start asking questions. He is a great example of bad parenting and our educational system.

  9. SR says:

    “Stupid is as stupid does.”

  10. Roslynn says:

    @ “not surprised” since you are so smart and made it this far wouldn’t you use your wisdom that you have and think that hey maybe this is a cry for help and that he is ready to be assisted? not everybody grows at the same rate (maturity wise) and it’s great to see that you have grown or think that you might have… not everyone is afforded the greates things in life and we all make mistakes…no one is perfect..if you look through his previous postings orior to his escape he writes that he tired of the thug life and wants out!! he like many of our other young males want help but in Bermuda while there may be some help in most cases it is not the right help..Bermuda has nothing compared to most states to offer our people. I speak from a prfessional level as I work as a Behavioral Therapist. Instead of putting him down and writing that he has screws loose (surprised Bernews allowed such a posting as most comment sites don’t allow name calling) offer him advice and encourage him to come in.. he obviously has access to a computer so he may see your positive words of encouragement….To Alvon I don’t know you…but after all the adrenaline wears off..do the right thing and turn yourself in… be a men and stand up and face the consequences of your actions..find someone that you can relate to on a positive level..do not be encouraged by negative people who are only enjoying the hype right now. Also do not be discouraged by the negative things people are saying about you… no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes…

    Only Government can allow freedom of speach/speech. Point taken Ros……

  12. Person of Interest says:

    On Facebook, Alvone Maybury Is saying,”I don’t know what I’m done to deserve such a bad hand in life”.

    Perhaps he should look at his own actions – there he will surely find the answer.

  13. terry says:

    “A bad hand”……………………..

    Anyone see the irony here.

    ‘Handcuffs’…………………..I need a double and some coke……………..

  14. MK47 says:

    How do you run away from someone in handcuffs? Most of the police I see looks tip top……

  15. Sean says:

    Hmmmm I know 181 leads that the police can start to follow, that of his Facebook friends.

  16. terry says:

    You don’t run away from someone in handcuffs.

    Man this cocain is terrible……

  17. Oh Please says:

    @Roslynn please give me a break! This is Bermuda not some third world country! He has had all the opportunities that the rest of us had. That’s the problem, people are always trying to come up with excuses and reasons why these guys behave the way they do. Maybe if the gun he is “accused”(PC) of possesing and firing hit one of your relatives or you you’d have a different opinion.

    Surely life is hard but that’s not an excuse to turn to the “thug lifestyle”. Did you ever think that he HAS been assited already and has refused? “not surprised” said that he has had helped and didn’t utilize it and I believe that. I’ve been to school with some of these guys also and I know that they were helped in school with counseling and the like. Sometimes people just always choose to do the wrong in life and like not surprised said will always have a few screws loose. Which is why we have prisons because they can’t function in society with the rest of us and are a menace to society. He can get all the help he wants and needs sitting in prison. He doesn’t seem to be screaming out for help taunting the police and being arrogant enough to update his facebook profile.

    Also a mistake is stepping on someones toes not having a gun and shooting it. That’s takes actual thought and he knew what he was doing. The only thing I agree with you on is encouraging him to turn himself in. If he is innocent he wouldn’t have ran, he can have his fair day in court if he thinks he is being so unjustly detained on these charges.

    • Roslynn says:

      @ Oh Please surely you do not work with people in the same capacity that I do…if you did you would realise that what might work for one person may not work for someone else…Whatever your reason for getting upset is i guess of a personal nature…while you may not agree with my opinion the reasonable thing would be to respect it…While I don’t necessarily agree with everything you are saying I will respect it… I am not saying his gun crime was a mistake..if I am correct my comments were based on his escape…. I too have been to school with them and in my job capacity of 12 years I have worked with them as well.. so I know what i am talking about when I say that while one service may work for one it may not work for another… simple counselling works for some, while some may need need counselling and mentoring, others yet may need intensive treatment overses because we do not provide the services on island that they need. I suggest that you read my comment again so that you get the full meaning of what I wrote. I am not condoning his behavior…so “oh please” take another read and no Bermuda is not a Third world country.. I respect your opinion so please respect mind even though it may not be the same as yours…Have a great evening!!!

      • Oh Please says:

        No problem I certainly do respect that you do have a right to your opinion I just so happen to not agree with it. I don’t need to work with these criminals to understand their mentality, human observation and interaction works just fine. Surely couselling does work for some but the bottom line is for others there is no hope and that’s just the way they are.

        Surely getting a dollar sign under your eye doesn’t scream I want help and I’m willing to turn my life and looking forward to a positive future.

        I’m not upset over anything personal. Innocent people have already been shot and that’s what is upsetting. This island is TOO SMALL for this nonsense to continue. You should be just as concerned and I hope you are. This needs to end and this coddling them needs to stop, he’s 24 years old and knows right from wrong. He wants to be treated with respect in prison? Yet I’m sure he doesn’t respect anyone or the person he would have shot down like a dog-you know the same way he says he is being treated like.

        Counselling doesn’t always work and if you read MY post again you would see that I said he could get all the help he wants and needs sitting in prison and doing the time for the crime he most likely committed.
        I didn’t mean to come off as being disrespectful.

        You have a wonderful day aswell.

  18. terry says:

    Not Surprised….

    Tell the police where he is. You know………………….

    • Not Surprised!! says:

      Terry I’m going to pray for you, because If I say what I really want to say, I’ll leave you in a serious state of embarrassment. Don’t ever talk reckless like that you idiot. Choose your words wisely. I said what I said in my comment and I meant every word of it. I dont wanna hear no crap about only Goverment can initiate freedom of speech!! I say what I like and If you dont like it, too bad. And I aint gonna say something If I clearly dont know what im talking about. I’ve known Alvone all my damn life, THAT’S how I can say all the things I said and no I didnt use any phrases lightly because this is not a light matter.

      And lastly, If I knew were he was, I would have BEEN said something!!

    Maybury: “I ain’t trying to go back to dat hell hole. they act like all of us there are dogs or something. I told them the other day what happens to a dog that’s in a cage all day. When you let him out he ain,t gonna kno how to act. I’m sick of eattin dinner at 4, or being lock down all day. I hope some one pops me in my face b4 they catch me”.

    He certainly sounds like a charming boy. Innocent too I’ll bet. Never been in trouble etc etc etc… blah blah.

  20. Exactly! says:

    “Oh please” couldn’t have said it better!!

  21. Roslynn says:

    All of you that are quick to pass Judgement on his actions and whatt he has to say..perhaps if you were privy to his background, etc you might not be so quick to judge… yes we all go through trials and tribulations, but what might affect me might not affect you…and vice versa… but at the end of the day our opinions don’t matter…He only has to answer to one person and that person is the good Lord up above……

  22. Gina says:

    Ok, both Roslyn and Oh please have valid points, however the greater issue that we have is our system and how we are dealing with the violence and issues that we have on our little island. First of all, we MUST stop living in the past as though we are still that sweet island paradise. Clearly our young people are showing that the times have changed, hence we must rise up and meet the behavior that is being displayed. From a security perspective, there is no reason why anyone who is facing gun charges should be going to court with just his hands handcuffed – that is like an invitation to try and run, as the young man did; I agree with Roslyn, when you work in a field with troubled young people, what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for other, however it is totally beyond my belief that we spend ridiculous amounts of money sending these young men abroad to programs that costs over $100,000.00 per year, and do not take the initialtive to visit one or two, see what they do and imitate the exact program here on our island home – why?? At the end result, these young people still have to come home eventually and learn to deal with the same issues that they left, that being oeers, family etc. – if we create a residential program on the island (or on one of the surrounding islands) followed by a halfway house where they transition back into society gradually and incorporate family counselling if necessary then we might seee lesss recidivism and more success at significantly less costs.

    Educationally we must start loking beyond just the cognitive delays that our children may be coming to school with nad address teh social emotional, behavior and socially maladjusted behavior challenges that they are presenting. When we tackle these issues early in life, we stand a better chance at creating educational programs that allow these children to be more successful and give them a sense of achievement regardless of what their disability may be. CHILDREN ARE NOT BORN BAD, THAT ARE MADE BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To the young man in question, unederstand that life is full of choices, regardless of the cards that you have been dealt in life. If you have made poor choices, at some point you must come to terms with those changes, accept the consequences and accept any/all help offered to you to assist you in changing your thought patterns and behavior. You must learn that you are worth more than having a bullet put into your head.

  23. YOUR ACTIONS WILL BE JUDGED says:

    THERE IS NOTHING THAT ANYONE OF YOU OR THE POLICE OR THE GOVERNMENT OR THE AUTHORITIES OR THE PLP/UBP/ ANY OTHER PARTIES BEING CREATED CAN DO TO STOP VIOLENCE… THE BIBLE PROPHECY HAS TO HAPPEN SO LET IT. THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN ARE A SURE SIGN AS THE “LAST DAYS”. GET A GOOD HOLD OF YOUR BIBLE AND READ WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO DO IT GODS WAY. 2 THESSALONIANS 1:8- IN A FLAMING FIRE, HE BRINGS VENGEANCE UPON THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW GOD AND THOSE WHO DO NOT OBEY THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT OUR LORD JESUS.

    VERSE 9 READS THESE VERY ONES WILL UNDERGO THE JUDICIAL PUNISHMENT OF EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION FROM BEFORE THE LORD AND FROM THE GLORY OF HIS STRENGTH..IN THE END IT REALLY DOESNT MATTER ABOUT A PERSONS BACKGROUND OR THE FACT THAT HE HAS ISSUES FROM PAST SCARING…ALL OF US WILL BE JUDGED ACCORDINGLY…AND TO THOSE WHO THINKS HE NEEDS COUSELLING OR JAIL..THEY ARE WRONG HE NEEDS TO KNOW THAT ONE DAY THE END OF THIS SYSTEM WILL COME AND HE WILL HAVE TO LOOK BACK OVER NOT WHATS HE KNOWS OR WHAT HE SAYS BUT WHAT HE HAS DONE! TO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE AND ARE STILL DOING BAD..YOUR DAY IS COMING. WHEN GOD JUDGES YOU. HOPE YOU ALL CHANGE BEFORE THE END COMES…READ YOUR BIBLES…MAYBE ALVONE WILL READ IT IN JAIL.
