Saint Lucia police are on the hunt for four young men who escaped from a state COVID-19 quarantine facility in Castries Friday.

A senior law enforcement official told St Lucia Times that the men were held earlier in the day after entering the country illegally from neighbouring Martinique.

Deputy Police Commissioner, Milton Desir, told a news conference Friday that in two separate joint operations, the Marine Unit and Territorial police intercepted two vessels arriving from the French overseas territory.

“Those vessels, the persons in each instance, we had four persons on board – those persons were arrested,” Desir disclosed.
