Man Escapes Custody in West Bay after Drug Arrest

Man Escapes Custody in West Bay after Drug Arrest

18th April, 2018 Police Headlines

Just before 11:00AM yesterday, 17 April, two detectives were carrying out investigations in the West Bay District when they observed a male behaving suspiciously in the vicinity of the junction of Boatswain Bay Road and Watercourse Road. The officers approached the man, at which time he attempted to flee while trying to conceal a package in his pocket.

The man was then stopped by the officers at which point he became extremely aggressive. Officers attempted to subdue him and recovered a package of cocaine from his person before he brandished a knife and made aggressive motions towards the officers while threatening them. The man then ran in the direction of Duxies Lane and managed to escape into nearby bushes. Efforts to locate him proved futile.

The man is Dorlin Allen Ebanks of West Bay, age 64, who also goes by “Allan Barnett” (see picture attached).

Officers are seeking the public’s assistance in locating Mr. Ebanks, who is now wanted for escaping lawful custody, several drug related offenses, assaulting police and threatening offences. If seen, members of the public should exercise caution and call 9-1-1.

Otherwise, those who may have information about Mr. Ebanks’ whereabouts should contact DS Taylor at 925-3075 or the West Bay Police station at 949-3999.
