The Ministry of National Security in the Bahamas says police are investigating an apparent attempt by inmates to escape from the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services (BDCS) over the last weekend.
In a brief statement, the Ministry said officers from BDCS, foiled a plot by two inmates, following a routine check of a male dormitory where a hole was discovered in the ceiling above one of the cells last Friday.
“The damages to the ceiling have been repaired and all inmates are accounted for at BDCS. The two inmates are expected to be formally charged this week in connection with this incident,” the Ministry of National Security added.
It gave no further details regarding the planned escape including the identity of the two inmates.
