Murder accused tells police ‘I shouldn’t have come back’ after airport arrest
Murder-accused Antonio Myers told a police officer “I shouldn't have come back, I knew you guys were looking for me” as he was arrested on his return to Bermuda, Supreme Court heard today.
The jury heard how Mr Myers 25, from Rambling Lane, Pembroke, was arrested in the arrivals hall of L.F. Wade International Airport after an overseas trip.
He is on trial accused of shooting 30-year-old Kumi Harford of Mission Lane, Pembroke, on December 5, 2009.
Detective Constable Shannon Swan, who was then in the police drug unit, told Supreme Court he spotted Mr Myers in the arrivals hall at about 7.30pm on Sunday, January 10, 2010, shortly after the Miami flight had landed.
Det Con Swan said: “I approached Mr Myers, introduced myself and showed him my police warrant and arrested him on suspicion of the murder of Kumi Harford.
“It was just by chance that I saw him, I was there for another matter but I knew there was a warrant out for his arrest and I recognised him.
“He said to me: ‘I knew I shouldn't have come back, I knew you guys were looking for me'.”
Mr Myers, who was travelling with his girlfriend, was described as being “upset” at the time of his arrest. His girlfriend was said to be “vocal and somewhat aggressive” as she questioned why he was being put in handcuffs in front of everyone.
