Local police say they are changing their strategy after several failed attempts to apprehend suspected murderer Calvin “Burga” James who has been on the run for months now. Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Frankie Thomas told OBSERVER media that investigators have adopted a more strategic approach in the hope that James will soon be apprehended. “We have adopted a new way, a different approach, a more strategic method of searching for him, based on certain information and intelligence that we received,” Thomas said.
While he did not disclose exactly what that method was, the police spokesman has sought to give the public the assurance that efforts to recapture James are ongoing. “We want the public to understand our situation and know that we are continuing to search for this young man,” he added.
James allegedly shot and killed his niece Tahisha Thomas and her sister-inlaw Sanchezca Charles in the early morning hours of October 5, and also allegedly shot and seriously wounded his nephew Lawrence James during the same incident. The crimes occurred at the victims’ home in Donovans. Meantime, the police continue to appeal to the public to provide assistance about the whereabouts of the suspected killer. The reward for information to capture James stands at $25,000.
The 53-year-old suspect is described as armed and dangerous, and lawmen are urging residents not to approach him if or when seen, but to instead call the nearest police station or 911. Bulletins have been issued in French, Spanish and English in several Caribbean countries including St. Lucia, Dominica, Martinique, Guadeloupe and Monserrat. An appeal has also been issued for James to surrender immediately at any police station in the company of his attorney or family member.
