Escapee Found Badly Beaten And Tied-up Under Bridge in Tivoli

A prison escapee, who was yesterday found under a bridge in Tivoli Gardens, Kingston with his hands and feet bound, is now back in police custody.

The police said 27-year-old Kevin Thomas, otherwise called 'Tattan' or 'Tafari' of McKenzie Drive in Tivoli Gardens, escaped from the Denham Town Lock-up in September 2016

He had been charged with breaches of the Firearm Act.

Thomas was reportedly found under the bridge about 1:00 pm.

The police were alerted and he was taken to hospital for treatment and is now under police guard, informed the Jamaica Constabulary Force's (JCF) Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) in a release today.

The police are reminding the public that it is an offence to harbour a criminal and are commending the members of the public who assisted with the recapturing of this fugitive.

'When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.'
