Two prison escapees recaptured
Police Thursday morning said “swift and tactical action” by the Joint Services has led to the recapture of two of the men who escaped from the Lusignan Prison on Tuesday night.
Back in custody are Alex Mattias and Arnold Kennedy. They were recaptured at Zeelugt public road, East Bank Essequibo.
Police said the prisoners will aid in the ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding the escape and they will also be processed for charges.
“Thanks to all those persons who helped to get the information about the escape out to the public, the support of the public for providing information on their location and the Joint Services members for conducting a clinical recapture,” Police headquarters commented.
