Dundee prison escapees rearrested

Dundee prison escapees rearrested

Five men who escaped from Dundee Correctional Services on Saturday, have all been rearrested after an intelligence driven police swoop on Wednesday.

The five, in custody for charges ranging from murder to rape, escaped through a hole they made in the ceiling.

Police spokesperson Major Thulani Zwane hailed the predawn raid as a success.

“The freedom of five Dundee Prison escapees was short lived as they were arrested and are now back behind bars.

“In the early hours of this morning, the members held an operation and police swooped on a house in the Madadeni area where they rearrested the five escapees,” he said.

“They will appear in the Dundee Magistrate’s Court tomorrow [Thursday] facing charges of escaping from lawful custody,” Zwane added.
