In two separate incidents, three men have escaped police custody. In the most recent incident, Scarborough police are searching for a man identified as Heston Lopez.
They say Lopez who is originally from Trinidad was under police guard at the Scarborough General Hospital, on Friday evening when he managed to evade officers and make his escape.
Meanwhile, officers of The Inter-Agency Task Force and Port of Spain Division are searching for two men who also escaped police custody last week.
Reports say that duo Jahim Allman and Chad Lavia were arrested for allegedly breaking into American Stores in Aranguez. However, while in a cell at the San Juan Police Station they managed to escape after the cell gate was left unlocked.
The Police Professional Standards Bureau is said to be looking into the matter and disciplinary action is expected.
