It was reported that Beekham was arrested and detained at the Springlands Police Station in Corentyne, Berbice  following police searches in the area.
Crime Chief Wendell Blandhum confirmed these reports.

Burnham, and openly stated his intentions to target the PPP’s Freedom House headquarters and “murder” Jagdeo and  as well as other PPP/C officials.

Just recently Police had detained a 52-year-old woman, who was believed to have posted racially-inciting social media comments about African Guyanese, and what appeared to be a threat to President David Granger.
