Sherman Rodney,22, escaped from police a few hours after Steel Bob jumped out of a moving vehicle also escaping police custody. Police say that an officer escorted him to the KHMH because he was complaining of severe pain to his left arm. When he was taken inside a room by a nurse, the officer waited outside, and when the nurse exited, he went in to check on Rodney. Rodney took the brief moments of no supervision to escape.

 After 3 days of searching, Rodney handed himself back into police custody, and he was charged with escaping from lawful authority. He was arraigned on Tuesday, February 25, before Magistrate Dale Cayetano, and when the prosecutor explained that Rodney was being investigated for a crime, bail was denied, and he was remanded into custody. Officers from the Criminal Investigation Branch immediately escorted him back to the police station after his arraignment.

 Belmopan Police continue to look for 29 year-old Edwin Paula who escaped from custody on Wednesday, February 5, while he was being transported from prison to Belmopan for his arraignment. He managed to escape his shackles and he busted out of a moving vehicle when it slowed down at a bump in Cotton Tree. He is wanted for aggravated burglary, robbery and murder
