Prison break: three inmates on the run

Story PictureTaking advantage of a black-out and to make life even more dangerous, three inmates busted out of Hattieville prison sometime between two-thirty and two-forty-five on Sunday morning by picking a lock. Word from prison officials is that the inmates may be heading west and north. They are Rene Morente, a Guatemalan national serving time for Aggravated Burglary but was also on remand for murder. Rene Ramos, another Guatemalan national, has been in prison since 2006 for a conviction of Carnal Knowledge. And the third escapee is Raul Barahona, a Belizean who was serving time for Kidnapping and Robbery. Prison officials are asking the public to be cautious and to call 225-6229 with any information on the inmates.
