JAIL authorities have managed to recapture the three escapees that bolted last Thursday from the provincial jail of Zamboanga del Norte, the police said Monday.
Zamboanga Peninsula police spokesman Joseph Ortega said the escapees were recaptured around 7 a.m. Saturday at Sitio Lumbia in the village of Mate, Manukan, Zamboanga del Norte.
Recaptured were Antonio Tuagi, Danford Duhaylungsod and Brian Nobresala.
Tuagi and Duhaylungsod were charged with murder, while Nobresala was slapped with a rape charge. They escaped around 10 a.m. Thursday from the Zamboanga del Norte Provincial Jail by destroying the barbwire fence of the detention facility in the village of Don Jose Aguirre, Manukan.
Ortega said the escapees were recaptured one after the other after members of the Barangay Intelligence Network in Mate have tipped-off the authorities about their presence in the area.
The recaptured escapees are now detained back at the provincial jail, said Ortega.
