Five prisoners are now on the run after escaping from Spanish Town Police Station lock-up in St Catherine on Saturday morning.


They five escapees are:


Akeem Hall, 18, of Beverly Flats, Newlands, Portmore, St Catherine, who was charged with robbery with aggravation.

Andre Siddon, 19, of Lindel Close, Fraser‘s Content, Spanish Town, St Catherine, who was sentenced to seven years and two years in prison, for illegal possession of firearm and ammunition and assault, respectively.

Jevon Bashford, 20, of Big Lane in Central Village, St Catherine, who was charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition

Omar Bramwell, 27, of Red Church Street, Spanish Town, St Catherine

Reports from the Spanish Town Police were that during a check at the lock-up, it was discovered that the prisoners were not in their cells. It is believed that they escaped by cutting a grille.


Anyone with information that can lead to the recapture of these prisoners is being asked to contact the Spanish Town Police at 984-2305, police 119 emergency number, or the nearest police station.


The police are also reminding the public that it is an offence to harbour a criminal.


It's the second major jail break on the island within the last several weeks. Six prisoners escaped from the Freeport Police Station lock-up in Montego Bay, St James on November 30. Two of those prisoners have since been recaptured and one killed by cops.
