Update: Police have indicated via a WhatsApp message for the Newslands group that no one is being sought. We are waiting for an official police response on the matter.
The management at the prison has shared that:
“As the RCIPS has responded to you already, they are not currently carrying out an investigation in relation to any escaped prisoner from police or HMP custody, and were not carrying out any searches in the Northward area over the passed 24hrs.”
(CMR) Preliminary unconfirmed reports are that a 28-year-old is wanted by authorities in the Northward area after escaping from custody earlier this evening. The police are conducting a door to door search. Our sources indicated that he is believed to have escaped from the Bodden Town police station. Exclusive CMR eyewitnesses indicated that two police units were out searching for him after 8:30 pm this evening.
Out of an abundance of caution, Northward residents are being asked by CMR to secure their homes and belongings. We understand his last name is Ebanks.
This is a developing story and CMR will provide further updates once available.
