The second of the six persons for whom the Guyana Police Force had issued wanted bulletins for has turned himself in to the police.
Early yesterday morning, Shawn Benn, of 53 Princess Street, Lodge, turned himself in at the Brickdam Police Station. The man was accompanied by Attorney-at-law Nigel Hughes.
Hughes said his client contacted him and indicated that he wanted to turn himself in after seeing the wanted bulletin.
According to Hughes, before he left his client at the Brickdam Station he ensured that the man had no marks of violence or bruises about his body.
Trevor Ellis has also turned himself in. Up to press time both men were still in police custody assisting with investigations.
Meanwhile, the police have re-issued bulletins for escapees Kurt Thierens called ‘Glasses’, and Colin Jones called ‘Bunny’, who are suspects in the arson attack that destroyed the Ministry of Health building in Brickdam.
The other wanted men are Keith Ferrier, called ‘General’ and Charles Clarke called ‘Pumpkin or ‘Perkin’.
The relatives of Charles have since come forward to say that at the time of the incident he was out of the country.
The men are all said to be wanted for questioning in connection with the recent arson attempt on the High Court and the Richard Ishmael Secondary School, and the attack on the Brickdam Police Station.
In addition, ballistic tests carried out on shells recovered from the scenes of last Wednesday’s reign of terror in the city have revealed that they were fired from weapons that are not on the police records.
Police Commissioner Henry Greene has confirmed that the shells did not match any that were recovered from other crime scenes.
Forty two 7.62 x 39 spent shells, five warheads and a 12 gauge cartridge were recovered by the police at scenes near the Brickdam Police Station while two more 7.62×39 were recovered near the East Ruimveldt police outpost.
The revelation points to the use of new AK-47 assault rifles by the gang that attacked the buildings.
