Prince recaptured | Named in connection to $800K jewellery heist at Mi Amor

Khori Tahj Prince

Khori Prince, the 19-year-old who escaped police custody almost two weeks ago, has been recaptured and will appear before the Magistrate’s Court at the next available sitting.

Police recaptured the teen during an operation in Greenland, East End Wednesday morning, January 30.

Police also announced Prince as one of the suspects behind the December 29 burglary of Mi Amor in Road Town where an estimate of $800,000 worth of jewellery was stolen.

“Prior to his escape, Prince had been charged with burglary in relation to the Mi Amor break-in on Main Street in late December. He will face additional charges in relation to his escape,” police said in a statement to BVI News.

Police Commissioner Michael Matthews, in the meantime, said the accused man’s recapture is the result of  ‘excellent teamwork’ by his officers.

Matthews said: “I am proud of the investigative work of my officers in making the initial arrest and the subsequent recapture. We don’t always get it right but when we do, we do it well. The officers teamed up and ultimately brought about a desirable end.”

    So glad Mr Prince has been caught. He has been a m—- to society since he was a young —– kid. In and out of j– since 14. He’ll never c—— and should be in ——- for the rest of his life. Tola is s—- when —- not on the streets. Shame on his —- for enabling him for years. A little tough love and maybe he wouldn’t have turned out like this.

    Now that they chased after and caught him, can they finish the Walwyn investigation and let us know the results please before the election? Aren’t we entitled to know?

      Dr. Smith is a man of distinction. The only criminals in this matter are the Americans who received the money and never deliver the air service. VIP and C****n took millions and still no sewerage system in East End. The Guinness book of world records listed the Beef Island bridge as the most expensive bridge ever built. Anyone noticing that?
