Prisoner recaptured minutes after escape

Mere minutes after she attempted to escape legal custody in Arouca, a female prisoner was held hiding in some bushes.

The woman, a 31-year-old inmate of the Golden Grove Women’s Prison, managed to escape her handlers at the prison around 6.35 pm Thursday.

It was said that as she reached the prison, she managed to open a window of the van, and escape.

She ran a short distance away and hid in some bushes.

However, her attempt at freedom was short-lived as she was held a short while later.

She was arrested and taken to the Arouca Police Station.

WPC Horsley is continuing inquiries.
