Prisoner makes a dash for it

COURT TODAY BLOCKIt was the screams of a female police constable, as she raced into the courtyard at Central Police Station with a male counterpart on her trail, which raised the alarm today that a prisoner had escaped.

“Man escape from court,” she shouted loudly.

“He [is] wearing a white shirt.”

Immediately, some of her colleagues sprung into action. The lawmen boarded two police vehicles and scratched out of the precincts around 12:25 p.m.

By 12:35 p.m., loud sirens were heard as the same vehicles re-entered the courtyard, this time with Derrick Oneal Morris in tow.

“Muh foot brek,” Morris, of Block 11A Factory Avenue, Pine, St Michael was heard saying, as police assisted him in getting out of the vehicle.

Morris had earlier appeared in the dock at the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court No. 1 before Magistrate Douglas Frederick on a charge of stealing money and was offered bail.

However, the prisoner, who was allowed to sit on a bench, as he awaited the arrival of his surety, decided to make a run for it.

He reportedly reached as far as Roebuck Street before being apprehended by lawmen.
