The Guyana Police Force (GPF) and the Guyana Prison Service (GPS) are hunting for two prisoners who kicked open the prison van door and escaped while being transported to the Lusignan Prison.
The two prisoners have been identified as Ryan Wilson, called ‘Pepsi,’ a 28-year-old of Lot 69 Vergenoegen, East Bank Essequibo (EBD), and Shamar Singh, a 22-year-old of Hague, West Coast Demerara (WCD).
The duo was in custody for the offence of simple larceny and possession of narcotics.
The Police Force said the men escaped just around 16:15h on Friday at the eastern end of the Demerara Harbour Bridge after kicking down the prison van door while being transported to the Lusignan Prison.
“Committed efforts are being made to recapture the two men,” the Police noted.
