The Police was wrong, 18 inmates escaped, not 19
After a count of inmates held in the maximum-security prison in Guayaquil known as “La Roca“, after that a group of armed criminals escaped easily on last February 11, the Prosecutor’s Office determined that only 18 inmates escaped and not 19 as previously said.
Luis Moreno, head of the Judicial Police of Guayas, acknowledged a mistake when calculating the number of prisoners who escaped.
However, the officer did not reveal the identity of the prisoner who was erroneously included in the list released.
According to unofficial sources, the inmate was Colombian Luis Alberto Jaramillo Valencia, who was imprisoned for illegal possession of weapons and narcotics.
It should be noted that the negligence level of the Police force is very high, so much that they cannot even make a proper count after a jailbreak, 11 days after the event, and in the meanwhile the 18 most dangerous fugitives in the country continue to enjoy their self-granted freedom.
