29-year-old Ryan Wilson, a contractor of Vergenoegen, East Bank Essequibo, who had escaped from Police custody on Friday, January 13, has been recaptured at Bushy Park in Region Three (Essequibo Islands–West Demerara).
Reports are that at about 10:50h on Wednesday, January 18, Police ranks acting on information received went to Bushy Park, East Bank Essequibo and apprehended Wilson, whom they escorted to the Leonora Police Station.
Only two days ago, prison escapee Shamar Singh, who with Wilson had escaped from a Police van that was transporting them from the eastern end of the Demerara Harbour Bridge to Lusignan, East Coast Demerara, turned himself over to the custody of Police. The 22-year-old resident of Hague, West Coast Demerara was handed over to ranks at the Vreed-en-Hoop Police Station by his mother.
Police have said that Singh’s mother told detectives her son had contacted her via cellphone and asked her to collect him at Guyana Power and Light office in the vicinity of the Vreed-en-Hoop Stelling, West Coast Demerara (WCD), because he wanted to turn himself over to Police custody. As a result, the woman related, she picked him up, took him to the Vreed-en-Hoop Police Station, and handed him over to the Police.
Wilson, called “Pepsi”, was charged with indecent assault, while Singh is facing the offences of simple larceny and possession of narcotics. (G9)
