One more prisoner still at large

The Police have thanked members of a family at Vaiusu for their swift action which led to the capture of one of two escaped prisoners.

Aniseko Vaelei was spotted by the family members who gave chase. They restrained the prisoner while the police were called.

The police arrived shortly after and took Vaelei into custody.

Vaelei was one of four prisoners who broke out of prison four days before Christmas.

Two were caught the same day, including notorious prison escapee, Lauitiiti Tualima.

Uili Manuleleua remains on the run.

He is the last of the four prisoners who escaped from the Tafaigata prison on Wednesday 20th December 2017.

“We advise members of the public not to approach him directly as he is considered aggressive and dangerous,” a notice from the Police said.

“If anyone knows of any information in regards to his whereabouts please contact the police immediately on phone 22222 or any nearest police post.”
