Former Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Officer Bijon Warner is in custody in the United States and is awaiting extradition
Former Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police officer Bijon Warner is in custody in the United States and is awaiting extradition to St. Kitts and Nevis, according to Acting Commissioner Hilroy Brandy.
Warner had absconded after an internal investigation was launched into his involvement in the shooting of the late Dominican-born officer, Brian Pacquette, who succumbed to the gunshot wound after and an altercation in June 2018 with Gretson Isaac which resulted in Isaac sustaining injuries that required treatment at the Joseph N France hospital.
There were numerous concerns as to how former officer Warner was able to abscond. Police Chief Ian Queeley, who is currently on leave, admitted that young man had fled, ultimately becoming a fugitive.
