Renewed Public Appeal: Help Locate 65 Year Old Colin Fubler [Updated]

Mon, 2020-02-10

The Bermuda Police Service is renewing the public appeal to locate 65 year old Colin Fubler.

Mr. Fubler has not been seen for the last two weeks, but was only reported missing on Friday 7th February.

However, there have apparently been recent sightings of Mr. Fubler along Reid Street in the City of Hamilton.

Mr. Fubler is described as a black male, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall, of medium build, weighing around 175 pounds.

He has a bushy hairstyle, thick beard and walks with his head hung to one side.

Police efforts to locate Mr. Fubler since he was reported missing are ongoing, but have been unsuccessful to date.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of 65 year old Colin Fubler is asked to call the main police telephone number 295-0011 as soon as possible.

Update: Friday, February 14th - The Bermuda Police Service can now confirm the death of 65 year-old Mr. Colin Fubler, and extends sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Mr. Fubler’s lifeless body was found by police officers on patrol at around 8:20 am on Wednesday, February 12th, at an abandoned house on Parsons Road in Pembroke.

Constable to Appear in Court on Suspicion of Defeating the Course of Justice

Mon, 2020-02-10

Commissioner of Police Mr. Stephen Corbishley - "A serving police officer was this morning charged with offences relating to unauthorized access to police information and drug matters.

Lakila Hart was arrested in June 2019 on suspicion of defeating the course of justice and remains suspended from duty.

Constable Hart will appear before Magistrates’ Court on the 10th of March.

The above is not an indication of guilt to the officer concerned as this is now a matter for the courts to make judgement on.

As I have stated previously, the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) has recently invested resources into its Professional Standards Department, which has responsibility to ensure the Service acts with integrity and professionalism.

However, these matters are small in number and do not represent the hard work, ethical standards and professionalism displayed by police officers and staff that work tirelessly each day to keep Bermuda safe.

In fact, the number of officers suspended is just 1.5% of the Service and is not representative of the hard work and honesty of staff.

That notwithstanding, it is essential in securing the public’s confidence in our services that we act when serious wrong doing by police employees is identified."

Mon, 2020-02-10

To that end, as we seek to provide reassurance, the BPS can confirm that ballistic testing has revealed that the firearms used in these recent incidents, have revealed that these are not new weapons and have been linked to previous matters which have resulted in the arrest of individuals for suspected involvement in those crimes.
