Escaped Prisoner, Lincoln Bejerano, Back in Prison after 2.5 Years

Lincoln Bejerano

Lincoln Bejerano escaped from police custody in Belmopan in October of 2016, but tonight we can report that after two and a half years on the lam, he is back behind bars. He was wanted by Interpol as the main suspect in the murder of taxi driver Isidro Suar in January of 2016, but later that year, he and another prisoner, David Cruz, escaped when an officer let them out of their cells before a court appearance to use the bathroom in Belmopan. While Cruz was captured in April of 2017, Bejerano evaded authorities; that is until he got in trouble in neighbouring Guatemala. ACP Joseph Myvett says he was deported to Belize and into the hands of waiting cops and has since been returned to the central prison in Hattieville.

“He apparently was in neighbouring Guatemala where he had apparently committed some infraction for which he was arrested and charged. He ended up paying his fine and was deported to Belize where he was taken into custody where he has since been arrested and charged for the crime of escape and escorted back to the prison. This was on Friday last.”
