Police are searching for an inmate of the Stock Farm Prison who escaped on Friday.

The prisoner, Bert Williams Williams, 24, of St. Vincent & the Grenadines was charged with two other Dominicans in connection with a burglary at Greens Supermarket in Loubiere, Inspector Claude Weekes has said.

Williams, who is considered armed and dangerous, is described as, according to wanted poster:

NAME: Bert Ellis Williams
ALIAS: Code
ORIGINAL PLACE OF ABODE: Loubiere
NATIONALITY: Vincentian
DOB: 7/1/1986 ( 24 yrs)
COMPLEXION: Brown skin
BUILT: Erect
HAIR: Black
EYEBROW: Bushy
FOREHEAD: Round
NOSE: Flaring
FACE: Oval
MOUTH: Normal
HEIGHTt: 6 feet
CHIN: Square

Weekes said based on investigations the Vincentian escaped while playing basketball with other inmates on Friday. He left behind a pair of slippers, Weekes said.

Williams along with Martin Luther Jno Baptiste of Newtown appeared before Magistrate Candia George on November 24, 2010 on a joint charge of burglary, while Eustace Joseph of Point Michel was charged with handling stolen goods.

It is alleged that Williams and Jno Baptiste entered as trespassers and stole $17,130 in cash, $638.45 worth of groceries and a cell phone valued at $150 between 10:30 p.m. on November 19 and 3:30 p.m. on November 20,2010.

The items belonged to Paul Green, the charge stated.

Joseph was accused of handling $12,370 of the said cash.

The men were not required to plea as the matters are indictable and are to be heard at the High Court of Justice following a preliminary inquiry.

Bail was closed for Williams as he was considered a flight risk.

“He has no roots in Dominica… If he leaves and goes to St Vincent it will be very difficult to get him back in Dominica,” the police prosecutor told the court in his objection to bail.

Meanwhile, bail was opened for Jno Baptiste. However, he could not supply the court with a proper surety – in his case a requirement. His father, who appeared at the court, said that he was not there to stand him bail.

He was remanded at the state prison and was scheduled to reappear in court last Thursday.

Joseph on the other hand was luckier. He was granted bail in the sum of $15,000 with a friend as surety. He is set to reappear in court on May 5, 2011.

The preliminary inquiry for Williams and Jno Baptiste is set for May 26, 2011.

    First of all dominca need a secured prison sythem with light , monitor, cameras, well train correctional officer, towers. The chief of police stated that he wuold be read to enforced the law and to deal with the domincans detainee”s come back home from the states who has commited crimes, howe? the prison fence is a joke the money that is brougth in by the courts by charging people with a small ammount of marijuana should be used to bould a better perimeter fence and to by coffee to keep those correctional officers alert. and a sytem should be in place to alert the lacal niegtber hood not two days later.

    They better go Vinci and look for Mr, Mr done gone, bonjay DA slack eh way way, mr Stocky playing basketball, but since in the courtroom mr made up his mind he escaping eh, once the magistrate say he is ‘flight risk” he done save that in his mind,” all u will not have me for long” lol The police of DA need to put his picture all over Vinci as a wanted man, how comes it will be so hard to get him back to DA, is all that the feller hear that make him take that chance to escape. Already he have all Green money and cell phone, he will end up anywhere in the caribbean, so they need to put his picture in all the neighbouring islands,

    The minister who is responsible for the Prison Services ,need to have an enquiry as to how the guy was allowed to escape . This incidence happens to often in Dominica and it is taken likely. Some one should be made responsible and heads must roll.

      for sum reason u kept the BUILT section to urself… and why is that may i ask?
      so check ur built list and tell me if we match any

      ERECT
      SOFT
      LONG
      SHORT
      STIFF
      HARD
      THICK
      THIN
      HAIRY
      SHAVED (clean cut)

      any one i missed?? :mrgreen: :lol:

      • pedro
        December 7, 2010

        Ah, the “built” list. I think you meant the “posture” list. Here it is:

        normal
        slouch
        stooping or sway back
        erect

        Erect
        Although good posture means standing erect in relation to gravity, overcompensation may occur. In an overly erect posture, the lower back is arched excessively forward, with the shoulders pulled back and the chest pushed out. The buttocks also protrude to an extreme degree.

    I live at StockFarm….no police or prison official came to warn the residence that this dangerous man was on the loose. Suppose he had taken a family hostage or something? Stop hiding these things from us…….we need to know is for our own good!!!!!

  29. FED UP DOMINICAN
    December 6, 2010

    Stockfarm is the main prison in Dominica, so why is it so easy for inmates to walk out? Is it classed as a catagory A,B,C etc prison, or is it classed as a Open Prison.

    If he has managed to return to St Vincent then surely they would extradite him back to Dominica. There must be some agreement between the islands, are they not members of CARICOM or the OECS?

    As for the description given, what a joke. This happened on Friday and they have kept it from the public until now. Were they out looking for him and presumed that they would recapture him without the public knowing.

    When this sort of thing happens, is there a public enquiry and do they share the report with the public.

  30. Just giving my two cents
    December 6, 2010

    I don’t want to laugh at the Dominica system but my gosh, what kind of description is that?

    Built: Erect – what does that mean? Does it mean he stands straight? LOL

    Forehead: Round – now i have to monitor people’s forehead to see if i can see a round one, a square one, or what other shape there is supposed to be!

    Nose: Flaring! – I thought of an angry horse

    Mouth: Normal – what is an abnormal mouth? I’m assuming 1 with a permanent disfigurement!

    CHIN: Square – again, i’ll look to all persons i see to figure out what’s there chin shape!

    Not trying to be silly, but that’s all i could do when i read this…my reaction was WTF?

    If i didn’t see the guy’s pic, the caricature i had in mind was TOTALLY different…but then again, this is DOMINICA, where everything seems to be a be joke!!!!

        And God help me i had to hold my tongue on the BUILT: Erect one – because my first question was “does that mean that his penis is always up?”

      • common sense
        December 6, 2010

        if you knew anything about describing someone’s features you wouldn’t say that

        • Just giving my two cents
          December 6, 2010

          Well i guess i don’t that’s why i found the description strange : built :erect, nose flaring …but i’m sure i’m not the only one thinking…are those the only words to describe the same thing?

          And i think that even someone who knows how to describe features would do a better job than that..or would you disagree?

          Then again, i guess you’re a pro on describing features so would you educate me, since escape convict criminal feature assesment is out of myzone!

      JUST GIVING MY TWO CENTS you are a legend. You made my day with your analysis on the day’s best news story. I am keeling over with laughter all the way in London. DNO makes it worth waking up in the morning (well except when they post graphic images without any warning). I guess from now on I too will be facing the same dilemma; there will be so many unhappy people on the bus to work tomorrow as I will be definitely be staring at their faces to gather what type of forehead or chin or mouth or flaring nostril they possess.

    St. Vincent authorities need to detain the said prisoner and have him send back to Dominica
    to serve his time. Mean while posters with the said prisoner’s photo needs to be posted

    Some one who is high risk what is he doing playing football. He needs to be behind bars, he is a
    foreigner who by all means will try to escape.
