Two fugitives wanted for murder have been arrested in the Caribbean after Homicide investigators made public pleas for their capture this spring.
Michael “Teddy” Gibson was arrested in Aruba two weeks ago.
On April 2, 2016, Gibson, also known as Tyke, was in the company of the deceased, Julian Weekes, at a memorial for another murdered friend. They were seen together socializing near 366 Queen St. E. that evening.
While out front of the bar, and without warning, the suspect allegedly fired numerous shots at Weekes, causing him to flee. He was found deceased shortly afterwards in a nearby parking lot at Parliament St. and Richmond St. E.
Homicide Detective Sergeant Michael Patterson said investigators received many tips about Gibson’s whereabouts.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to call us,” he said, of the many tips, including those anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers (222tips.com).
Meanwhile, 48-year-old Dalvin Lewis, wanted in connection with a 2015 homicide in Scarborough, was arrested at Toronto Pearson International Airport on May 11.
On Saturday, September 12, 2015 at 3.21 p.m., 43 Division officers found 56-year-old Bevis Larmond lying on the north side of Lawrence Ave. E. near the apartment building at 4062.
Homicide Detective Shannon Dawson said the victim was in medical distress and was being assisted by 9-1-1 callers when police arrived.
He was rushed to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Dawson said Larmond had been socializing with friends when he left to go to the store on his bicycle.
Lewis was identified as being responsible for the murder.
On October 7, 2015, a warrant was issued for his arrest for First-Degree Murder.
Lewis, also known as ‘Hopeton’, ‘Jaguar’ and ‘Jaggy,’ was arrested shortly after stepping off a flight from Jamaica.
Dawson said the suspect agreed to surrender after negotiations between his lawyer and TPS Homicide.
