9th May, 2023 Police Headlines

Update (9 May):

On Sunday, 7 May, wanted convicted man Ronald Ernesto Swaby was arrested for breach of a court order after being located by police travelling in a vehicle in the vicinity of Seymour Drive in George Town. Police also conducted searches of the vehicle and its occupants, recovering a quantity of cocaine and prescription drugs. The occupants of the vehicle were subsequently arrested on drug-related offenses, and this matter is currently under investigation.


Swaby appeared in court this morning for breaches of court orders and failure to attend court for previous matters, including in relation to a previous conviction for Possession of an Imitation Firearm. He was remanded pending a further court appearance on Friday, 12 May.


Initial Release (20 April):

The RCIPS is seeking the public’s assistance in locating 28-year-old Ronald Ernesto Swaby.


Swaby was found guilty following a Grand Court trial for Possession of an Imitation Firearm and is currently on bail awaiting sentencing. He failed to attend a scheduled court appearance this past Monday, 17 April and his bail has since been revoked.


The police are advising that he should not be approached by members of the public, but instead to call 9-1-1 upon sighting him.


Investigators are encouraging anyone with information about the whereabouts of this man to call the George Town Police Station at 949-4222 or dial 9-1-1, specifically if the circumstances are time sensitive.


Swaby, having been convicted of a serious criminal offence, is considered to be a fugitive evading the criminal justice process. 


The RCIPS is warning anyone who chooses to aid, assist or harbor him that this is a criminal offence, which may lead to a lengthy period of imprisonment, and we will investigate anyone who does so.
