Most wanted Williams was travelling in minibus with low cut hair
Guyana’s most wanted, Royden Williams, who previously sported dreadlocks, was captured Monday evening with “low cut hair”, traveling in a public mini-bus heading east on the Weldaad, West Coast Berbice public road.
Police acted on intelligence and intercepted the notorious criminal at approximately 20:00hrs, some three months after he and several others escaped from and burnt down the Camp Street prison in Georgetown.
Police said he was found alone and unarmed. At the time of his capture, he was wearing a T-shirt and boxers.
Williams escaped from the Camp Street Prison on July 09, 2017, and is believed to be the mastermind behind the prison riot. He was last spotted on August 31, 2017, in Linden. Williams was in the company of Uree Varswyck, another prison escapee, who was shot dead during a Joint Services intelligence-led operation at Central Amelia’s Ward, Linden. According to a police statement, Williams managed to escape on foot.
Royden Williams aka Mark Royden Durant aka ‘Smallie’ was on death row for the Bartica Massacre.
