Escape Ringleader and Two Others are Caught

Three more escapees have been recaptured - the most recent less than an hour ago - and he is a big one.

Santos Lopez - who was on remand for murder - was captured this evening by police on the Valley of Peace Road.

Santos Edwardo Zepeda Lopez was on remand at Kolbe Foundation for an ammunition offense. He's also under investigation for the shocking murder of 59-year-old Rosa Chincilla who was found with a cut wound to her throat at her residence on Lindo's Alley. He was the alleged ringleader.

And then this morning, Albert Banner surrendered to the Hattieville police. He walked into the station and allegedly told the cops he was hungry. He was taken to court this morning.

And then this afternoon in Hopkins village, police caught Elroy Henry. He allegedly tried to trick the police and gave them his brother's name. But police identified him with a tattoo.

Henry will shortly be handed over to the Dangriga Police for processing and eventual transfer back to the prison.

19 have been caught and 9 remain at large.
