$300k reward offered for recapture of Lusignan prison escapee


The Guyana Prison Service (GPS) is offering a reward of $300,000 for any information that may lead to the apprehension of convicted prisoner Jose Awad.

Awad, whose last known address is Redlock Lima Sand, Essequibo, escaped from the Lusignan Prison on May 14, 2024.

“Director of Prisons, Nicklon Elliot, confirmed that a reward of $300,000 is being offered for any information that can lead to Awad’s recapture,” the GPS said in a notice.

In a press statement, the Prison Service said Awad made good his escape after he was left unsupervised while working at the snackette in the compound of the Cecil Kilkenny Training School.

Awad was serving a two year sentence for break and enter and larceny.

Following the escape, the GPS said supervising officer who was on duty at the time was placed under close arrest to facilitate the investigation.

Awad’s wife and mother-in-law were also arrested during the probe.

Anyone with information leading to Awad’s recapture can contact the near police station, the Officer-in-charge of the Lusignan Prison on telephone number 604,7305 or the Prisons Director on telephone number 613, 6616.
