A male prisoner who escaped while receiving medical attention at Caura Hospital last night, was arrested early this morning in the El Dorado district, by officers of the Northern Division Task Force (NDTF).
The prisoner was receiving treatment, when he managed to escape around 7:18pm, on Sunday 18th August 2019. Several units, including the Air Support Unit, were dispatched to the location, as part of a coordinated search operation.
As officers at the Northern Division Operations Centre monitored strategic CCTV cameras in the Division, a man matching the description of the prisoner was observed walking along Goya Road, around 12:50am, on Monday 19th August 2019.
Officers of the NDTF arrived at the location within minutes and were able to apprehend the prisoner, who was taken to Arouca Police Station.
Investigations are ongoing.
