Less than 24 hours after escaping the lawful confinement of the Dominica State Prison, Shaquille Bastien, alias Tiki, voluntarily surrendered to the Police on October 15, 2023, at the Roseau Police Station.
On Saturday, the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force (CDPF), issued a bulletin seeking the public assistance in locating the 28-year-old of Fortune.
In November 2022, Bastien was sentenced to a term of imprisonment of three years following his conviction of theft. Almost a year later, he executed a daring escape, successfully eluding law enforcement for a brief period. However, he eventually surrendered to the police at the Roseau Police Station at 6:15 a.m. today.
Details regarding the circumstances of his escape and activities during this time remain unknown. Despite his surrender, Bastien’s brief taste of freedom comes with its own consequences, as he will face additional charges related to his escape from lawful confinement.
