After 12 hours on the run, five of the eight prisoners who escaped the Golden Grove Prison in Arouca were recaptured last night.
The Express was told that the five were held in a bushy area near a guest house at Las Lomas.
Police identified the recaptured prisoners as Mikhale Mohammed, Steffon Austin, Joshua Janet, Kerry Valentino and Brent Johnson.
