Escaped prisoner caught as he stepped off a bus

David Flowers

Have you ever heard of the great escape? Well, twenty-two year old David Flowers, also known as David Dougal staged and executed his escape when he was taken to the Magistrate’s Court. Around nine-thirty this morning, Flowers was escorted to court where he was to stand trial for Burglary. He was left unattended briefly as the officer left to make copies of documents and that was when Flowers seized the opportunity to make a break for it. But his freedom was short-lived because within two hours he was recaptured by police as he exited a bus on the Northern Highway. Flowers has been sent back to prison after he pleaded guilty to escape from lawful custody. Flowers was sentenced to six months in jail. The burglary case was set for a later date.

    Glad this fool got caught. Inmates should never be left alone, unless they are locked in a cell. This shows the lack of training. Inmates should always be handcuffed & shackled when taken to court or any other visits outside the PRISON.

    Sasha, you’re right on all counts.

    He’d better look for an honest job when he gets out, because he seems too ignorant to succeed at his chosen profession of crime.

    This is why known “escape artists” like Quilter escape-it is not that they are escape artists or so smart-it is Police and Prison too stupid to do better.
