Convict remains at large

One of two prisoners who escaped from Tafaigata last weekend is still at large.

A police hunt is on for Tui Samuelu of Manono-tai, Falelauniu and Vailoa.  

He and Aniseko Vailei escaped from prison last week.

According to the Media Officer for Prisons, Sagaga Frost, Vailei has already been found.

“He was found by members of the village at Vaiusu and they contacted the police at Faleata on Saturday,” said Sagaga.

“However, Samuelu is still on the run. We’ve received calls from the public that he has been seen in Savai’i.”

Samuelu is in prison for theft and burglary.

 “We advise the public to please contact the police if he is seen anywhere. Do not approach him as he could be dangerous.”
