Newly promoted Superintendent Charles Smithen and the men of CID, and police officers of the Tabernacle Police Station conducted an operation between the times of 11:30 p.m. on Monday 23 June 2014 and 1:00 a.m. on Tuesday 24 June 2014, and tracked and located the three (3) juveniles who absconded from the New Horizon Rehabilitation Centre on Sunday 15 June 2014.
All three (3) juveniles are in police custody and so are the persons with whom they were located.
Commissioner Walwyn wishes to advise the general public that it is a crime to harbor runaways and in this case, absconded juveniles. The DPP’s Office will be contacted for charging advice on these individuals. Commissioner Walwyn also takes this opportunity to thank everyone, especially newly appointed Police Superintendent Charles Smithen and his team who were instrumental in the investigation process locating these absconders.
