Dorlin Ebanks

(CNS): Police are currently searching for Dorlin Allen Ebanks (64) (aka “Allan Barnett”), a West Bay man who escaped from officers Tuesday as they tried to arrest him in the district after finding him in possession of cocaine. Ebanks was said to have brandished a knife and threatened the police before making off on foot towards Duxies Lane and disappearing into nearby bushes. The two detectives, who were carrying out investigations near the the junction of Boatswain Bay Road and Watercourse Road, had spotted him behaving suspiciously at around 11am.

As the officers approached, Ebanks attempted to flee while trying to conceal a package in his pocket. He was at first stopped by the police then became extremely aggressive.

Officers attempted to subdue him and recovered the cocaine he was trying to conceal but he pulled the knife, approached the officers aggressively, made the threats and then ran off.

The officers were unable to find him and are now asking the public to help track him down. He is now wanted for escaping lawful custody, several drug-related offences, assaulting police and threatening offences.

Police said anyone who spots Ebanks should exercise caution and call 911 immediately.

Anyone that has information regarding his whereabouts should contact DS Taylor at 925-3075 or the West Bay Police station at 949-3999. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777, the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online here.

    I Can’t believe some of the negative comments about the RCIPS.
    This man has been a criminal all his life, there’s nothing we can do about it, in fact in the 90s he was even more violent with the police.

    This sort of person should be locked up for life and the key thrown away.

    XXXXX He has wasted over the years so many police resources, our tax money supporting him in and out of jail.

    Waste of space,just like so many other persons on this little Rock.

    Criminals are criminals because the police have caught and achieved a conviction in the courts
    They are out on the street is because the judicial system usually gives them a pathetic sentence ..for all those knocking the police they have already done their job ..these guys get a slap on the wrist and are let out to cause continuous havoc

      3:57 am, the majority of them are just uniforms collecting a pay cheque. Could not wear a uniform in their own country but we dress them up a say they are police.

    We need a retirement home for old criminals and we need it now. Oops we have it HMNP. This man has been running from the police for years. Don’t say much for RCIPS when they can’t catch a 64 year old man. Maybe Allan should try out for that iron man marathon, seeing that he made of ironwood.

    All too often criminals outrun the police. Officers should be required to shape up or ship out.

    Glad to see the the lack of weaponry by the police is working out. They should’ve just handcuffed themselves and offered their police car while they were at it.

    Florida police was able to hunt down a man hiding in a swamp with his head only above the surface. RCIPS can’t catch anyone.

      no training, no guns, and no proper protection … who the RCIP looking for? think they going out their way to find a man with a knife and all they have is a stick … Come on!! Its time to arm our officers. because, “apparently” we have more guns than people on this island.

    I’ve got too many people to be on the lookout for already. Next time bring tasers when you try to arrest a violent drug dealer. Do these guys even have batons? Time to get serious about crime.

      Absolutely agree but you know how the public is. We say the police need to be more aggressive but if we arm them and some altercation happens and someone is shot, two things will happen. 1. Someone will have video’d it, cropped out the lead up to the shooting, pass that part around and claim another “innocent child of God’s grace” is claimed by “over aggressive militarized” police force to promote police hatred. Or 2. people will see cops with guns on the street and lament themselves saying what is our country coming to that the police are now armed and they need to step back. People cannot have their cake and eat it too. You can either be tough on crime and give the police the equipment and support to do their jobs and clean up the community or accept the rising crime and shut the hell up knowing that the police we handicapped because you’re afraid to be offended by an member of authority with a gun..

    He has lived his whole life in and out of prison and still running . Where he ran to is the same place he used 50 years ago . That’s where he lived when he was not living in prison. He will soon turn himself into Police when he’s ready to go back to second home . That’s another thing that he did for last 50 years .
