A man well known to police was arrested at his one Woodbrook place apartment last night for allegedly aiding and abetting the two escapees Olatunji Denbow and Michael Findlay who remain at large.
Investigators told Guardian Media the suspect who had a string of matters previously in court, including murder was held by a team of police officers from the Port of Spain task force under the supervision of inspector powder sometime last night.
He remains in police custody at the Besson Street police station.
Denbow and Findlay along with six other men escaped from the golden grove remand yard prison in Arouca on May 15th.
The six other escapees were held within 24 hours of their escape.
Denbow and Findlay were among five arrested and charged for the February 2016 double murders of construction workers Andre La Touche and Abiola Noel.
Denbow, in an alleged statement released on social media subsequent to last Wednesday’s prison break from the Golden Grove remand yard prison, said he has been locked up three years, due to, an alleged, collaboration by corrupt police and a professional paid state witness adding that she was also a witness in three other murder cases.
A $50,000 reward is now being offered by crime stoppers for information that would lead to the recapture of denbow and findley.
Police have described both men as armed and very dangerous.
