Wanted robbery suspect, Anthony “Thug Life” Govia is believed to have fled Antigua for another territory after allegedly robbing Carlisle Bay Resort of over $60,000 last year, a source close to the investigation said.

Also, no wanted bulletin had been posted on Interpol up to yesterday when OBSERVER media checked the site.
The source said a number of tips were received over the past few months since the incident, and it is believed that someone close to a senior law enforcement officer might have facilitated Govia’s escape from the island.
