A Prison Escapee Was Re-captured During A Spot Check Operation

Prison escapee Jevon Bashford has been recaptured just over a week after he fled the Spanish Town lock-up with four other inmates. Reports are that he was held along Spanish Town Road during a spot check on Sunday evening.

According to an alleged eyewitness, several police vehicles surrounded a white Nissan Tiida motor car with several men aboard. One of the men was believed to be Bashford.

Bashford, 20, of Big Lane in Central Village, St Catherine, who was charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition,  escaped from the Spanish Town lock-up with four other prisoners on Saturday, December 19.

His reported recapture comes a day after the head of another escapee, Duran Colman, was found in Dela Vega City, Spanish Town.
