Five of the eight prison escapees recaptured


    The search continues for three of the eight inmates who escaped from the Golden Grove Prison overnight.

    The eight prisoners were missing during roll call around 6am today, and immediately the TTPS placed an All Points Bulletin to search for them.

    Prisons Commissioner Gerard Wilson believes a hacksaw blade was used by the prisoners to escape.

    As of 5:45pm, those recaptured have been identified as Joshua Janet, Stephon Austin, Brent Johnson, Atiba Sealy, and Mikhale Mohammed. They were held by joint forces in the Las Lomas area. 

    They are each now facing an additional charge of “Escaping Legal Custody”.

    Still at large are Olantungi Denbow, Atiba Sealy, and Michael Findley.
