According to sources Dexter Jn. Baptiste aka Coco escaped lawful custody while being transported to the Second District Court on Theodore Street in Vieux Fort.
Jn. Baptiste was on remand for an indictable offense having been arrested late last year. Informed sources say he was being led into the courthouse when he made a run for it.
Although this incident occurred about 10 AM no official police communique’ has been issued to inform the public. The failure to inform the public during daylight hours has caused the authorities to lose the opportunity of recapture when the public could have been of great assistance.
Dexter Jn. Baptiste is originally from Dennery.
