Update 4.21pm: A police spokesperson said, “Around 1.30 pm, Friday 16th October 2015, prisoner Jamiko Kenneth Bean escaped from police custody in Southampton Parish.

“This occurred whilst he was assisting members of the Criminal Investigations Department in identifying scenes of crimes he is suspected of committing. He was last seen in the area of Sunny Side Park heading towards Riviera Estates wearing blue coveralls.

“To date, the public have been extremely helpful and there is every indicator that he will have changed his clothing following his escape. Anyone sighting Bean is encouraged to not approach him but to keep observations and contact 911.

“The Public are also reminded that it is an offence to harbor, conceal, assist escaped prisoner Jamiko Kenneth Bean in remaining at large.”

Update 6.06pm: A police spokesperson said, “Jamiko Bean has now been missing for several hours and he is obviously determined to evade recapture. We are concerned that the longer he remains at large, the more desperate and unpredictable he might become.

“It will be safer for everyone if we are able to secure his capture and we are asking for the public’s assistance in this regard. Anyone who sees Jamiko Bean, or has any information about his whereabouts, is urged to call Police Operations immediately on 911.”

Update Oct 17, 8.10am: A police spokesperson said, “Jamiko Bean is still on the loose and there have been sightings of him in the central parishes. It should be noted anyone found to be aiding and abetting Jamiko will be arrested and put before the courts. If you see him simply call 911 with a description of his clothing and the location where he was seen and the time.”

    Oh great. Google this guy.

    Why aren’t these thugs shackled? Is it so we don’t hurt their feelings?

  2. Bermy male says:

    He’ll turn himself in after the America’s Cup. He’s probably excited and wants to see the race.

    • JohnBoy says:

      well he certainly looks excited.

      • RBYC member says:

        That’s the poker face he used when they ask him if his handcuffs were to tight.

  3. JAWS says:

    Why are making things so easy for Jamiko Bean.

    Mr. Bean for every hour that you avoid police custody the Bermuda Courts are adding 30 days extra per hour to your time.

    Everyone who agree tick “Like”

    Escaped while being transported…hmmmm? Ok so…He exited a moving vehicle…and disappeared. Sooooo many questions, so little answers.

    • No Surprise here! says:

      Sad to say it would not surprise me if Mr.Bean escaped while enjoying take-out with the BPS at the Wok. Just like earlier this year when they enjoyed dining at Spotlight Cafe for lunch whilst being “transported”. Aka A joyride on taxpayers money and time.

    • Positive Pessimist says:

      I’m trying to picture if there are any traffic lights in that area but my mind is going blank (sorry, I’m an East End person) as the car could have stopped for a light and he could have taken off. It could have even happened when they slowed down for an intersection or something-he probably planned that the first time they slowed down or stopped he was jumping out.

      On another note, I know that ordinary citizens are not trained in dealing with criminals but when it comes to stuff like this (not armed and dangerous prisoners), all you need is a few able-bodied men to capture someone. For example, if a group of strong, able-bodied men spotted him and knew for sure that it was him, why not hold onto him until the police come (e.g. ‘citizen’s arrest’)? What did we do generations ago before there were police? It was left up to the ordinary men of the town to take charge. I know there’s liability issues and all that but by the time the police come, he could have moved onto the next place. He could be on the loose sleeping rough for weeks.

      N.B. I’m using the term ‘criminal’ in the context of what he’s doing now alone and not for what he was up for in the first place, as this act alone now makes him a criminal.

    Please tell me what handcuffs are for! This isn’t the first time someone has escaped police custody! When will they learn?

    To Serengeti Google Ya Mama. And to Bermy Male, don’t be a FA

    • Zevon says:

      Friend of yours, is he?

    • Just One says:

      Now we have a “Bernews Fugitive”? Lol

    • Bermy male says:

      So you like to call people FA!

      Be careful now you may be my brother in-law after the government allows GAY marriage. It’s ok I guess your brother didn’t tell you bro.

    Yip. He heard Pool got Klopp. Couldn’t risk missing tomorrows game so he made a move. YNWA!

  9. Dropped the Ball says:

    Interesting. Could he not assist them from the comfort of a jail cell? Some laxidaisy cop work it seems.

    • I wonder why the police not use a Taser gun to prevent things like this from happening? :-(

      • Positive Pessimist says:

        What-they’re supposed to tase him all the way down in the car? He probably jumped out of the car before the cops could react and get the tasers out. From just Googling it, standard police tasers usually emit out to a maximum of 30 feet and he could have been further away by the time they reacted.

  10. Y-Gurl says:

    Oh boy…they hardly catch them and when they do…they can’t hold them

    • Self says:

      I guess the cops fell for the old “Hey, look over there!” trick!!!

  11. Vulcan Trash Cleaner says:

  12. Coffee says:

    Weak police officers .

  13. Awake says:

    Apparently this guy broke into a house when the occupant called the police and he was arrested. So why is it that he wasn’t handcuffed?! More disturbing than initially thought!
