Lusignan prison escapee recaptured
Police this morning recaptured one of the three prisoners who escaped the Lusignan Prison on October 15.
Twenty-three-year-old Travis Evans of ‘C’ Field Sophia, who was on remand for murder, was recaptured at about 07:45 hours by Joint Services Ranks at the Linden Soesdyke junction.
Prison Director (ag), Gladwin Samuels did not reveal the details of the recapture.
Still on the run are 23-year-old Sudesh Dyal of Wales Backdam, West Bank Demerara, who was remanded on charges of break and enter and larceny and escaping from custody; and Dexroy Pollard, 29, also of Wales, who was charged with break and enter and larceny.
On Monday last, Mr Samuels had concluded that the guards were most likely asleep, giving the three prisoners enough time to cut a path through the razor wire atop the Lusignan Prison fence and escape the facility before dawn.
They were being kept in a holding bay of the prison; this area was created to keep prisoners from the Camp Street prison when it was burned down in July last year.
