Manderson on run 4 weeks

| 11/09/2013

(CNS): The hunt is still on for Marcus Manderson, the 25-year-old inmate who remains on the run some four weeks after he and his father and a third prisoners escaped from Northward prison. Manderson, who is serving a mandatory ten year jail sentence follow his conviction for possession of an unlicensed firearm, has managed to avoid being recaptured since the 14 August escape. His father, 44-year-old Steve Manderson, who is serving a life sentence for murder and who has now escaped six times, was recaptured almost two weeks ago and is facing charges of escaping lawful custody.

Both he and the third man in the jail break,Chadwick Dale (22), are being held in Northward’s high security unit, having been reclassified as higher risk prisoners. Dale, who is a Jamaican national,  has already been charged over the breakout and appeared in court Tuesday. He is serving a six year sentence in connection with a violent robbery.

Manderson has now been on the run alone for almost two weeks following the capture of his father in the Frank Sound area on 28 August. Dale was the first to be apprehended in the Rum Point area on 20 August.

When they were captured, investigating officers said it appeared that the men had been living rough while on the run. However, as Manderson is now alone, it is becoming increasingly likely the fugitive has left the jurisdiction. Nevertheless, the police said the investigation remains very much active, as both the RCIPS and the prison service continue to follow up leads.

Anyone who wishes to report any suspicious activity relating to the remaining escapee is asked to call 911 or any police station.

    I must risk my life for $1000? Come on! That can just cover a CUC bill. Heck they award more money with supermarket prizes. And one would think with all these millions floating around here that our crime stoppers would be well donated to.

        Acting in concert in the escape is enough in anyone's books.

            The law books are the one's I was talking about.  You can keep you "apolgist for criminal" books as far as I am concerned.

        Well Smartie Pants, The new sentence could run concurrently with the life sentence  in the unlikely event that his pleas of innocence lead to a quashing of the current verdict.

    I LOVE that electronic billboard on SMB road that shows the current count of caught vrs. still on the run prisoners. Brilliant!  Makes it kind of like Wheel of Fortune.  Maybe Fosters could incorporate this into some sort of scratch off promotion.

      In another article on here today, we see Mr Haines, former (and I am told excellent) COP running for probably around 4 hours in December. Given that he is one of the fittest albeit former COP, is there a policeman currently on the island who could catch this guy? I doubt it..hell he's been running for 4 weeks!!

    I see on Cayman 27 that crime stoppers is offering $1000.00 for information leading to his recapture. WOW, that must be at least 5 minutes in our fancy dancy helicopter?

      That's nothing – I could easily hand that to CUC at month's end or even Foster's.

    He may have just left the island by way of boat.

    On the bright side if he did that's one less criminal we have here.
