Saint Lucia police have appealed to the public for information leading to the capture of a convict who escaped from the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) farm Sunday.
The police have identified the escapee as Elwin Lansiquot, alias ‘Big Dude’ or ‘La Por Ta’.
Lansiquot was incarcerated for rape, resulting from an incident in September 2006 and was serving a 20-year sentence.
His escape has prompted a massive search involving police officers and the police.
Lansiquot is originally from Anse La Raye-Canaries, but his last known address was Riverside Road, Castries.
According to the police, the fifty-five-year-old has a scar on the left side of his face.
The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has asked anyone with information regarding his whereabouts to contact the nearest police station or the crime hotline at 555 for anonymous reporting.’
It was not immediately clear how Lansiquot escaped and what security measures were in place while he was at the BCF farm.
But one official, speaking anonymously, said the inmate was put to work on the farm because he was considered ‘low risk’.
His escape has generated a wave of unease among residents in the vicinity of the BCF.
