Charlton EBANKS (240x300).jpg(CNS): A suspect who escaped from police custody during a hospital visit in November has been re-arrested and is now back in the police cells. Twenty-one-year-old Charlton Ebanks, who has been on the run evading law enforcement officials for more than six weeks, was arrested yesterday evening, Thursday 29 December, following a police operation at the Treasure Island Resort on Seven Mile Beach. A police spokesperson said the fugitive was arrested on suspicion of burglary, escaping from police custody and in relation to outstanding warrants. Ebanks had managed to escape from his police guard at the Cayman Islands Hospital shortly after 7.00am on Thursday, 17 November.

A police spokesperson thanked the public and the media for the assistance provided to the police during the search for Ebanks.

    What kind of attention were the Cops paying to him at the Hospital anyway????  Seems like criminals get away too easy here – remember the one that escaped from Central Pol Stn and has never been found since???

    Six weeks how disgraceful on this likkle Island Speaks volume about the RCIPS level incompetence!!!!

      No, it   doesn't speak volumes about the compentancy of the RCIP, rather it speaks volumes about the citizens of these islands. This guy didn't live on the beach eating blueberries for six weeks, some one put him up, ferd him, clotyhed him and protected him and a lot of people knew who he was and where he was. Very simple.

    The only way people will think twice about helping escaped criminals is to send those who help criminals to jail as well.

    Until then it will remain a game of hide and seek.

      I agree.  It is called Aiding and Abetting.

    • Dred says:

      I could not agree with you more. I would make assisting or Aiding and Abetting a criminal half the sentence of the criminal. This way the more serious the crime he has committed the more serious the penalty for assisting.

      If he is found in the home of someone all residents who are of adult age should be charged with a crime. I would not believe that all adult residents of that home did not know he was there.
