“Yes, there were two prisoners was informed this morning who had escaped from the cell block; one was charged for murder and one was charged for robbery and my understanding is that they were to appear in court today. The individual officer who we deem to be at fault with be dealt with disciplinary. We believe that proper protocol would adhere to in terms of him going into the cellblock, removing them to use the bathroom and in that process that was when they were able to escape from him.”


The men are considered dangerous and persons who see them are asked to contact the nearest police station.
