St. Maarten – Officers of the Zero Tolerance team recaptured Anthony Ray Spencer on Quilletor Drive in Dutch Quarter at 6:30 p.m. on Monday– some 37 hours after he escaped the Pointe Blanche prison. Spencer escaped by climbing through a hole in the roof of the prison’s kitchen, jumping onto the roof of the prison command central and then climbing over the fence.

The Zero Tolerance Team that captured Spencer was led by Acting Chief of Police Carl John and Inspector Bloeiman. They state that Spencer heavily resisted their attempt to arrest him and had to be “down hard by the arresting officers in order to break this resistance.”

“As a result he sustained injuries and had to be transported by ambulance to the medical center for treatment,” a release from Police Spokesman Inspector Ricardo Henson stated.

Spencer was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries before being returned to secure custody.

Spencer, a 41-year-old who is serving a 24 year sentence after being convicted of murdering Christian Lloyd, is the second person to escape the prison this year. The first was Chucky Omar Nelson, who escaped on March 20 from the Gijzelaar section by sawing through the bars of his cell. He evaded capture until August 29 after 162 days on the run.
