Gone: Ryan Bowen

Two weeks after his recapture, a 25-year-old Grenadian national has escaped State custody again.

Ryan Bowen was among 12 people who escaped from the Immigration Detention Centre (IDC) in Aripo on July 10.

He was recaptured on August 11, at a home in Mt Hope Road, Mt Hope.

A firearm – a Glock 19 pistol with 15 rounds of 9mm ammunition which had its serial number filed off – was allegedly discovered on a couch in the living room of the home.

Bowen was brought before a Tunapuna Magistrate, and then sent to the St Ann’s Psychiatric hospital for an evaluation.
