good to know.
This had to be a planned job, someone has to be working on the inside or that correctional facility has some pretty pathetic guards. There was a surgery scheduled, ironic, there was a getaway car ready, one or two of the guards were paid off to let the shackles loose so he could "accidentally" get away This guy has a long list of convictions, including armed robbery at Costco a few years ago when he tied up all the staff (with help of course). I would like to think the security around this guy was high because of that alone.
That's me...and yes I do have my nose pierced...for about a month now. Do you take it often?
This had to be an inside job.
Its hard to outrun a person and a van. Especially with your hands tied together.
Even harder to get off leg shackles with handcuffs on.
yeah, and 25 mins to call the cops
he was just a misunderstood urban youth anyway.
well yeah obviously!
The guy is becoming a legend in my opinion.
He'll get caught... eventually.
I hope Halifax makes it on another episode of Americas Most Wanted... or at least a Global Crime Stoppers bulletin.
Know whats the worst part? I girl in my work knows his family and he was up for parole in july anyways. So why bother with all of this?
Maybe on old charges, he still had a lot of other pending ones.
This is a very dangerous man!!!
Carvery escaped prison in 1998

Ten years ago, Jermaine Carvery escaped from a minimum-security federal prison after just two days inside.
On Feb. 20, 1998, the man who ran away from jail guards outside a Halifax hospital on Thursday escaped from Westmorland Institution in Dorchester, N.B. And he terrorized people on the outside until he was recaptured six weeks later.
"Since absconding, you made your way across the country and are now facing serious charges involving a high level of alleged violence," states a National Parole Board report from July 1998.
Upon his return to prison, he was charged with two counts of robbery, four charges of forcible confinement, one of using a firearm and another of possessing a weapon.
Mr. Carvery has a criminal record for heists at two Costco stores and a Spence Diamond outlet in Ontario in 1997 and 1998. He was arrested in Vancouver in 1998 and sent back to prison.
Described as having unresolved anger issues, Mr. Carvery was denied day parole in August 1998.
A Jan. 23, 2004, parole board report states that Mr. Carvery "would never have been involved in your present offences had it not been for your gambling debts."
But while on statutory release, the Halifax man visited an unidentified casino. The board then barred him from entering "any establishment where gambling is involved."
Mr. Carvery landed back in jail on Oct. 10, 2004, for being out of his designated supervision area, and he was allegedly involved in other crimes for which he had not been charged.
Parole reports don’t identify those alleged crimes, but Mr. Carvery now faces charges in three armed heists in Nova Scotia in 2004 — at the TRA Cash and Carry in Truro on April 28, the Costco store in Bayers Lake on July 30 and Chrissy’s Trading Post in Hammonds Plains on Sept. 12.
In each case, store employees were forcibly confined by at least three masked men. In the Costco holdup, four to six robbers terrorized 42 store workers at gunpoint.
Police say Mr. Carvery is a suspect in a number of other unsolved holdups.
Sounds like a standup guy
caught in Ontario today /
what a debacle though. glad he's been caught.
Happens alot lol. I know of at least 2 others that achieved the same.
