Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) officers and the police are hunting a prisoner who escaped while working on the prison farm on Sunday.

According to reports, Elwin Lansiquot was serving time for rape committed in 2006.

He escaped after 8:00 am.

A photo of Lansiquot, taken when he was much younger, has appeared on social media.

“He was considered low-risk, that’s why we had him on the farm,” an official who spoke on condition of anonymity, explained.

Nevertheless, residents near the BCF have been cautioned to be alert.

  1. Well this is normal, the facility is well understaff, and from all indications the heads are still log ahead with the situation. They will find him because he may not have the resources to skip island as per norm, unless he escape prison where he didn’t had to pay no bills and now have to pay to hide – you see how effed up life can be sometimes.

  2. There is nothing like low risk criminal. Criminals want to do the crime but don’t want to do the time. Dax was a low risk offender, yet he remained on the ran for a very long time. A criminal is a criminal. All escape criminals should suffer the same fate. Lansiquot must be called upon to return himself to the prison. Failing to do so, he must be treated as armed and dangerous, and must suffer the consequences of his action.

  3. Lol. Low risk but am sure he has been mingling with the hardened criminals. So the C in BCF makes m eLOL. Btw who names a prison a correctional facility and all u hv are armed guards. Chooppsss tan. Find him, Kill him and then Bury him plz and thanksss

  4. That’s all the info you all giving the public to help….an outdated photo? Not even his height? Not even which he is from? Lucia is a rell joke srarrr!

  5. A nonviolent rapist. He broke out to get some action. My only question, is he dead yet? I can already visualize him with more holes than a slab of Swiss cheese.

  6. Everything is just swept under the carpet in this country. The officers will not speak out because of SECURITY concerns. You can have all the investigation you want. The two Ministers responsible for Home Affairs and National Security are the failures. They need to be fired for non performance. Where are the things the officers need to work effectively. You guys are just globe trotting and gov ng money to people for doing substandard works all over.

    The police force even worse. They have to beg for money to pay gas and buy day to day items. You saying Mr Charlery has a case with Chris Hunte that’s why he can’t be promoted(BS).

    The government only priority right now is after Chas. If u have evidence jail him already. Wtf.

    What victory are we really protecting.

  7. The guy observed repeated slackness at the facility and planned an escape which did not happen overnight. Talk about slackness in the public sector. Absolutely no accountability.
