Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum moments ago confirmed with Stabroek News that Thomas was arrested in ‘C’ Field South Sophia. He is in police custody.

Thomas, a Trinidadian, who resided at Lot 36 Guyhoc Gardens, Georgetown, was remanded to prison two months ago after he was allegedly found with almost two pounds of cannabis.

The police are still hunting four other escapees: Cobena Stephens also known as ‘OJ’, Bartica massacre convict Mark Royden Williams, murder accused Stafrei Alexander and Uree Varswyk.
