Four of five prisoners who escaped the Spanish Town lock-up yesterday are still on the run.

The fifth prisoner turned himself in to the Spanish Town police station today, accompanied by a pastor. He is 18-year-old Akeem Hall of Beverly Flats, Newlands, Portmore in St Catherine. He is charged with robbery with aggravation.

The police are still searching for the other escapees. The four prisoners still on the run are:
• Andre Siddon, 19, of Lindel Close, Frasers Content, Spanish Town, St Catherine who was sentenced to seven years and two years in prison for illegal possession of firearm and ammunition and assault, respectively.
• Duran Colman, 26, of Cockpit district, Clarendon who was charged for murder.
• Jevon Bashford, 20, of Big Lane in Central Village, St Catherine who was charged for illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.
• Omar Bramwell, 27, of Red Church Street, Spanish Town, St Catherine.

Anyone with information that can lead to the recapture of these prisoners is being asked to contact the Spanish Town police at 984-2305, Police 119 emergency number or the nearest police station.

The police are also reminding the public that it is an offence to harbour a criminal.
