Another Person Escapes Quarantine Facility

So far you have heard that immigration officers have been busted with weed and cops are involved in contraband. Now, a man escaped from the quarantine facility in San Ignacio on Wednesday. He is Duck Run Two resident Jose David Perez. An investigation has yet to establish how it is that he managed to do so. These facilities are guarded by B.D.F. soldiers and so today we asked B.D.F. Commander Brigadier General Stephen Ortega about it. Ortega says that the investigation is currently ongoing and if it proves that B.D.F. officers are at fault, they will be disciplined as has been the case in the past escapes.
