UPDATE: Police say escapee recaptured

The man who escaped from the Road Town Police Station this afternoon (June 2) has been recaptured.

Information Officer at the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force Diane Drayton made the disclosure this evening while she confirmed an earlier BVI News Online story that the escape indeed happened.

“That prisoner has been recaptured. I have no further details at this time,” Drayton told BVI News Online.

She did not disclose the name of the escapee, who highly placed sources said is the son of a sports commentator in the territory.

Those same sources, earlier today, told BVI News Online that the suspect was held for several hours up to the time of his escape from a cell.

He was nabbed in relation to a burglary.
