Police Recaptures US Prisoner Who Escaped From Overcrowded Prison

A United States citizen by the name Cristian Beasley, who hails from California was again captured on Sunday, December 17 by Badung Police chief Yudith Satria Hananta in Indonesia. No other information information was given after he was rearrested.

The US citizen was suspected to involved in crimes linked to narcotics. Beasley however, has not been sentenced, prior to escaping from Kerobokan prison in Bali last week.

The 32-year-old American is said to have cut through bars in the ceiling of his cell before jumping over a perimeter wall of the prison in an area being refurbished.

The Kerobokan prison, about 10 km (six miles) from the main tourist beaches in the Kuta area, often holds foreigners facing drug-related charges.

Representatives of Beasley could not immediately be reached for comment.

In June, an Australian, a Bulgarian, an Indian and a Malaysian tunneled to freedom about 12 meters (13 yards) under Kerobokan prison’s walls.

The Indian and the Bulgarian were caught soon after in neighboring East Timor, but Australian Shaun Edward Davidson and Malaysian Tee Kok King remain at large.

Davidson has taunted authorities by saying he was enjoying life in various parts of the world, in purported posts on Facebook.

Kerobokan has housed a number of well-known foreign drug convicts, including Australian Schappelle Corby, whose 12-1/2-year sentence for marijuana smuggling got huge media attention.
