A ‘dangerous’ Saint Lucian fugitive, Henry Regan, has been recaptured in Guadeloupe, local media reports have said.
Reagan, who was serving a life sentence for murder at the Baie-Mahaut prison in Guadeloupe, was recaptured by law enforcement officers on Tuesday after escaping in July this year.
Vincentian prisoner, Peters Orvel, who escaped along with Reagan is still on the run.
Orvel was serving time on charges including armed violence and sexual assault.
According to reports, Reagan was hiding in the woods between Sainte-Rose and Deshaies.
Hunters in the area sounded the alarm after observing suspicious activity.
Dozens of armed law enforcement officials launched a large scale operation, blocking access to the forest where the fugitive was spotted, identified and later held.
Reagan had already served 10 years in prison for gun violence, drug trafficking, kidnapping and forcible confinement.
The Saint Lucian national is known to be addicted to alcohol and crack.
France Antilles reported that Reagan was transferred to Guadeloupe after attempting to escape from the prison in Martinique where he had initially been held.
The prisoner was nicknamed “Zero” because of his school grades.
He was described as having a large scar on his right cheek – a slit from a knife wound he received.
He also has tears tattooed under the right eye and multiple other tattoos including an inscription on his neck: “God bless everything I do.”
