Dillon Clarke…recaptured

ARIMA – ESCAPED prisoner Dil­lon Clarke has been re­cap­tured by police.

He was caught dur­ing J’Ou­vert cel­e­bra­tions in Ari­ma on Sat­ur­day and will now appear before an Arima Magistrate on Monday on a charge of escaping unlawful custody.

Clarke, 34 of Mt Zion Road, Ma­tu­ri­ta Vil­lage, Ari­ma was held by of­fi­cers along Hol­lis Av­enue dur­ing the street par­ty, police said.

The TTPS tweeted, “While on patrol duties at the Arima Borough Day celebrations, officers noticed a man fitting the description of the escapee in the vicinity of the Arima market.”

He had es­caped from the Gold­en Grove Prison, Arou­ca on Thursday, while out on an agri­cul­tur­al project with oth­er in­mates.

Prison officials said that se­lect­ed in­mates par­tic­i­pate in the agri­cul­tur­al projects, but the must have served more than half of their sentence.

Sources said Clarke was sen­tenced in De­cem­ber 2018 to 24-months after being convicted for malicious damage.

He was ex­pect­ed to be re­leased from prison in April 2020.
