Law enforcement authorities in Antigua say a Jamaican woman who escaped from the Department of Immigration has been recaptured.

They say Donnalee Samantha Salmon was apprehended on Tuesday night.

She was one of two Jamaican women who had been on the run for the past week, having escaped from the Immigration Department’s Detention Center where they were being housed by breaking a bathroom window.

On Tuesday, a magistrate court sentenced the other Jamaican woman, Tiffanie Stephanie Howell, 30, to seven months in jail for escaping lawful custody.

Howell had earlier pleaded guilty to the charge that carries a maximum one-year jail term.

Salmon and Howell were awaiting deportation to Jamaica when they escaped.

Salmon is expected to appear in court later this week.
