National Security Minister, Dr. Horace Chang, says the Falmouth lock-up in Trelawny, from which four men escaped on Wednesday night, has construction weaknesses.
Dr. Chang gave his assessment of the escape while speaking with Journalists at an installation ceremony for the Custos of St James, Bishop, Conrad Pitkin.
Yesterday, Head of the Trelawny police, Superintendent Dwight Powell, said the men had cut their way out of the cell.
In the meantime, two of the four escapees have been recaptured. They are 22-year-old Travaun Lawson, otherwise called ‘Tall Man’, of Rose Mount, St. James and 39-year-old Adrian Stewart of Dumfries in the same parish.
Reports are between the hours of 5 and 6 yesterday evening, an operation was conducted in the Dumfries community where Stewart was recaptured.
Lawson turned himself in accompanied by his lawyer.
Twenty-four-year-old Mario Morrison of Bamboo district in Hanover and 31-year-old Oneil Demetrius, otherwise called ‘Boy Boy’, of Lowe River in Wait-A-Bit, Trelawny remain on the run. Both men are wanted for murder.
