Antiguan law enforcement authorities said a Jamaican woman, who escaped from the Department of Immigration, has been captured.

They say Donnalee Samantha Salmon was apprehended on Tuesday night.

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

On Tuesday, a magistrate court sentenced the other 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 their homeland, Jamaica, when they escaped. Salmon is expected to appear in court later this week.
