At that time an officer on his way to work his shift at the prison saw Kanhai who he suspected to be an inmate running along the Golden Grove Road.

The inmate was barebacked and in a blue prison pants.

The officer then turned around his vehicle, gave chase and managed to block the inmate along the Express Link Road, Arouca, where Kanhai told the officer he was going home.

The officer kept the man there until another prison officer came along, both men then awaited the Emergency Response Unit’s arrival who then took Kanhai back to the prison.

Kanhai is finishing up a four month prison term for the possession of cocaine at the Golden Grove Prison, he was expected to be released in a few days time.

      Some of the ones in Trinidad even had mobile phones. So they had phone with no work to pay for it, and no worries about it being paid. I wonder how many prisoners in Barbados might have mobiles on the inside..

    And I am yet to be convinced that the man whom just has been released from prison here in Barbados hasn’t a clue about cellphones, when I am quite certain many of the Prison officers have them, and are probably taking them to work. What has happened to the trustee program there had had many years ago at Glendairy? This idea that prisoners are supposed to be held in some dungeon far removed from the reaches of society ought to be abandon.
