Acting on information received, a party of policemen went to a home in Bushlot Village, West Coast Berbice, today around 15:00hrs, where a search was conducted for a juvenile escapee.
The 17-year-old escapee of the Juvenile Detention Centre, who was originally detained for an alleged murder, was found hiding in the lower flat of the building.
He was part of a group of five who escaped from the facility on April 22, 2021. Three others were recaptured shortly after and with today’s capture, only one juvenile remains at large.
He is presently in custody at the Central Police Station awaiting transfer.
