Police Capture Prison Inmate Shane Todd

July 7, 2012

[Updated] Police confirmed this morning that 36-year-old prison inmate Shane Todd was captured in Hamilton parish. Mr Todd — who has been convicted of a number of offences including sexual assault — had been on the loose for eight days.

Police Media Relations Manager Dwayne Caines said that a few minutes after 11am this morning [July 7] Mr Todd was caught in the Summit View, Hamilton parish area. Mr Caines also thanked members of public who assisted the police.

Mr Todd started serving a prison sentence for sexual assault and burglary in 2005, and was enrolled in a “re-entry programme” at the Prison Farm. He was out on work release when he failed to return last week.

Update 12.30pm: The police remained on scene at the Hamilton parish location where Mr Todd was found for quite some time investigating the scene, and were seen to remove a nearby bike.

Update 1.00pm: A police statement said, “Police can now confirm fugitive from justice Shane Todd, was captured without incident a few minutes after 11am this morning in the area of Summit View Road in Hamilton Parish.

“We would like to thank members of public for their assistance in this matter. Todd is now at Hamilton Police Station where he will be processed and detained. A court appearance is expected in the near future.”

    hopefully he gets another 5 years….he has not learned the lessons of life yet..

    • swing voter says:

      this person should not have been allowed into the program in the first place. High risk of re-offending and will eventually end up back behind bars. The only question is who will be his next Victim. Can anyone remember *somebody else* and his cohort were both career criminals well before the killed the innocent young lady.

    Good work men

  4. Truth is killin' me... says:

    And if somoen was harbouring him they should be arrested and charged too!!!!!!!!Enough of this SH#T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Peace says:

    Great job all.

    I guess that next week Col Lambe will have him back on day release to the prison farm while serves out the remaining 3 months of his 15- year ( reduced to 5- year) sentence.

    • Mayan says:

      Col. Lambe is not fit to run a prison and the sooner TPTB recognize this, the better. Col. Lambe thinks that if you give these guys hugs and kisses, they’ll be all better.

      Col. Lambe feels that we as a society are responsible for these men’s actions, and not them:

      “…Other points made by Commissioner Lamb were that Bermudians, black Bermudian males in particular, had “very little sense of identity”, and that this was due to a general community failing. He said that young men are “angry because they have not been given the tools to survive in Bermuda”. He said that the whole Bermuda community was guilty of: “Planting pumpkins and then coming around at Cup Match expecting to find watermelons.”
      He told the Joint Select Committee this morning [Nov 25] that this was a problem that was not confined to any one part of Bermuda’s community. It included all parts of the Bermuda community. He said that many young people were angry because no one had invested in them, and that as a result, young people were feeling marginalized.” Bernews, November 25, 2010

      I’m tired of people blaming society for how these guys turn out-especially since if one wants to correct someone else’s child, they want to f**k you off.

      Col. Lambe is one of those people who sees the good in everyone when sometimes you just have to call a spade a spade. These prisoners take advantage of this attitude. Some prisoners may call him a nice guy and appreciate what he’s trying to do, but a lot of them will call him a sucker and play him…

    • The nitty gritty says:

      Days after he went missing didn’t the Prison Service or Commish say he was no threat?
      After reading his record and comparing this to Pol Pot or Stalin, they were right, not much of a threat……unless you’re a female.

      • pepper says:

        so what does Lambe concider a threat ? this sicko should never have been allowed to leave this facility….. it is time for Lambe to go and be replaced by a lion… a man with balls that will not tolerate this #$%^ how many females were terrified knowing this maniac was on the loose ?

  7. Family Man says:

    Too bad he was captured “without incident”. I was really hoping the police could have subdued him with a little force. Maybe he’ll stumble and hit his head getting out of the police car.

    • mixitup says:

      “Maybe he’ll stumble and hit his head getting out of the police car.”

      It’s clear he hit his head a loooong time ago!

  8. mills, e says:

    Kudows to those that helped capture the pervert! Now he needs a goods ass whooping from females, not males but females. After all he likes to hit off women. Why can’t us females give him back what he had dished out?

  9. Amen says:

    Enough time out to get his oil changed!

  10. Enaemaehkiw says:

    That was my brother’s bike that they recovered. This a$$ jacked it from him right next to him after coming up and asking if my brother could drive him to Harrington Hundreds to get some beers. I hope they add bike theft to the list of what he is doing time for.

  11. REALISM says:

    thanks for speaking up bda!

  12. Awake says:

    Really? It took one week to report to the public that he was “missing”! What a waste of time! Send him to Westgate to serve at least 5 years for frightening the hell out of women, children, and the elderly, and for the total disrespect he portrayed to the courts, prison, and police! Lock up the fool that was harbouring him, right next door to HIS cell! They can spend the next 5 years chitchatting about their STUPIDITY! Schizophrenia? I doubt it!!!

    • Judgement says:

      Awake? You must have been asleep all this time it was reported to the public when he did not return to The Prison Farm days ago. Good job on this one BPS and thanks to those who assisted.

    • Mayan says:

      I’m wondering if he was hiding out in that shed. I’m not saying this is the case, but maybe he was hiding out there and not in a house? If the house next to the shed was unoccupied, it could have been awhile before anybody knew he was there and when they did find out, maybe turned him in. I hope this is the case.

      However, IF someone really was harbouring him I agree-they need to be locked up, too. They need to learn that this is a crime, and to send a message to anyone else who might consider doing this.

  13. Seeing Red says:

    One year at westgate for each day he was on the loose. Hopefully his sentence is no longer reduced for “good behavior”. lock up this piece of crap and those that helped hide him as well,

  14. Nuffin but de Truth! says:

    Eddie Lambe needs to be FIRED for allowing this sexual offender out!

    • Family Man says:

      No, not for allowing this punk out. He needs to be fired for trying to cover it up by not reporting it.

    • pepper says:

      I agree lambe needs to be fired ..

  15. Allan kuhn says:

    Can we hold the convict responsible? We should hold the system that were commissioned to hold him from out of contact with the public as prescribed by the court responsible for being like a dah “blonde”, “he is harmeless, do not worry he is no threat to the public” yeah right as long as he does not come across a pretty girl, heaven forbid if he went past Johns Smith’s Bay and spotted your girl in a bikini enjoying the sunshine and thinking what a great place Bermuda is!

    Get real, for Petes sake..Bermuda is another world alright, right out there!!!!

  16. Amen says:

    Can I buy his bike he won’t Be needing it !

  17. Truth is killin' me... says:

    Too many p#ssies in positions of authority. When am I gonna see a man in charge with brass balls take charge and not be afraid to do what is right!?

  18. Moonbeam says:

    Thanks to the ‘Boys in Blue’ ! They can’t do it alone so thanks also to the member(s) of the public who assisted.

  19. You all speak about how he should be fired because he is not doing his job. You don’t know any history on any previous commissioners. You all just stupid pokey bermudians that have all the the mouth in the world but are the same ones that just talk on websites and never talk to anyone else and try to change anything. You think his job is so easy why dont you take the job or find someone else who can. Since you know everything.
