Police in St. Vincent and the Grenadines said Friday night that reports on social media that two prisoners have escaped from His Majesty’s Prison and are armed with cutlasses are false.

“The Superintendent of Prisons, Mr. Dwayne Bailey has verified that all of the prisoners at His Majesty’s Prison in Kingstown and at the Belle Isle Correctional Facility are accounted for,” The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force said on its Facebook page.

“No prisoner has escaped lawful custody.  To those responsible for spreading this misinformation, we urge you to desist from doing so immediately,” police said.
