Basseterre, St. Kitts (11 May 2018) – Questions were being asked Friday night, why did the immigration authorities in St. Kitts and Nevis failed to flag Jamaica’s most wanted fugitive when he left St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport aboard a LIAT flight for Antigua’s V.C Bird International Airport on Friday afternoon.
According to Flight Aware, LIAT 317 departed St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw Airport at 12:44 PM, 11 minutes early and arrived at Antigua’s V.C. Bird International at 1:14 P.M. with 23-year-old Fitzroy Andre Coore onboard.
Antigua newsroom reports that twenty-three-year-old Coore was apprehended and taken into custody during a joint operation between Antigua Police and Immigration officials at the airport on Friday.
“He had just disembarked Liat flight #317 from St. Kitts, where he was hiding out over a period of time,” said Antiguanewsroom.
The Clarendon born resident is wanted for murders he allegedly committed in his hometown, Clarendon. A Grays Farm woman was also taken into custody by police and is assisting them with their investigations into the matter.
Both Antigua and Barbuda Police and Immigration officials are currently making arrangements to have the wanted fugitive escorted out of the country and handed over to Jamaican authorities sometime this week.
