Police: Do Not Approach Escaped Suspect

July 14, 2010

Alvone MAYBURY [large]The Bermuda Police released a statement this afternoon (July 14) saying a special task force has been established by Bermuda Police Service and Department of Corrections to continue the systematic search for Mr Maybury, and issued a warning that harbouring a fugitive is a criminal offence for which a person can be sentenced to two years in prison.

They also asked members of the public not to approach the suspect, but to contact police immediately to report clothing description, his location and his mode of transport if he is seen.

24-year-old Alvone Maybury (pictured, click to enlarge) was attending Magistrates Court, where he was charged with three gun related offences, when he took off running down Parliament Street. He had been in the custody of prison officers, and took off while still handcuffed with his hands in front of him. The Police launched a large scale manhunt all through the North Hamilton area; blocking off streets, stopping trucks and looking inside and more.

It appears that Mr Maybury may be updating his Facebook page while on the run, with his account showing over a dozen posts starting from late last night, going on to 3pm today.

The full Police statement is below:

Police are still looking for escaped prisoner 24 year old Alvone Maybury. It appears that 24 year old Maybury escaped from custody as he was being led from Magistrates’ Court after a court appearance on firearms charges.

A special task force has been established by Bermuda Police Service and Department of Corrections to continue the systematic search for Maybury. He is described as brown skinned wearing his hair in braids.

      LOL charming AND stupid. If I had a facebook friend wanted by the police and all over the media I wouldnt be commenting on his status and encouraging him. Hmmmm lets see who the police is going to come and question now. We have a few volunteer morons ready to go, lets burst into their homes.

    how he gonna run with the $ sign tattooed on his face….is he gonna have a tattoo artist give him several treatments to remove it, or will he walk around with a band-aid on his face, or will he burn his face. Now you have given your whereabouts through an IP address dumas. let’s see how long this takes. and to the simple lil’ chicks out there, you will be caught – ask the last chick that got caught this year. Is the money really that good? you might as well take it and do something with it instead of spending it on trendy clothes. Put it towards your child(ren)’s education fund, cause I am sure you have them
