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.”
