The Area Two police have launched a probe to determine if the police on duty or faulty cells are to be blamed for this morning’s jailbreak in Brown’s Town, St Ann.




Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Area Two, Ealan Powell says appropriate action will be taken based on the results of that investigation.



A Constabulary Communication Network release says four men were discovered missing about 4:30 this morning during a routine check of the lock-up.



They men had cut a hole in the ventilation system to escape.



Among them are 21 year old Mark Brown, who is charged with murder, and 19 year old Geraldo Bell, who is charged with reasonable suspicion for housebreaking.



The others are 23 year old Devon Ferguson, who is charged with simple larceny, and 21 year old Roshaine Gordon, who is charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition and shooting with intent.



The police are asking anyone with information about the whereabouts of these escapees to contact the Brown’s Town Police or any other police formation.
