Masbate City inmate bolts out of jail

MASBATE CITY –Police authorities here are still conducting a thorough investigation regarding the incident that resulted in the jailbreak of a detention prisoner.

The escapee is identified as Joel Bustamante. He is booked at the Masbate City jail for the crime of rape.
The investigation shows that he was able to bolt out from his detention cell unnoticed by the detention guard.
The detainee is a resident of the town of Claveria, Masbate.

As this developed, the Bureau of Jail Management (BJMP) officials are reviewing the records and the report that the persons assigned to keep a close watch at the detainee were remiss in their job.
