Fugitive from justice, Alister Stanisclaus who skipped the country almost one month ago while in police custody has been brought back home from St. Vincent to face trial for a number of bank-related fraud charges.
Stanisclaus who was in police custody at the South St. George Police Station at Morne Rouge, St. George’s escaped lawful custody and days later made his way to the neighbouring island.
However, he was quickly picked up by the authorities in SVG and spent 14 days in jail there for breach of immigration regulations.
Stanisclaus who describes himself as a poultry farmer of Radix in Mt. Parnassus, St. George’s was deported back to Grenada on Tuesday morning on board a LIAT Flight.
He emerged from the aircraft clad in a light blue jersey, three-quarter plaid pants, a pair of sandals on his feet, and was using a green jersey to cover both lower ends of his wrists that were handcuffed.
Stanisclaus was tightly escorted out of the arrival lounge of the Maurice Bishop International Airport by two Police Officers who are attached to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and taken into an awaiting vehicle.
He was moved directly to the CID Headquarters on Hillsborough Street, St. George’s where he was interrogated by the lawmen who slapped additional charges on him including escaping lawful custody.
Stanisclaus who was due to appear in court on October 26 on bank fraud charges broke loose from the police station at Morne Rouge after he was paid a visit by one of his close aides and alleged associate in crime, Andy John.
The poultry farmer who was released on bail in the sum of $50,000.00 four months ago allegedly made off with thousands of dollars from the ABM’s of Scotiabank.
He is accused of tapping into the accounts of a number of prominent people including a female Magistrate and managed to take hold of just over $100,000.00.
Stanisclaus allegedly stole $69,970.00, and $41,500.00 from different Scotiabank ABM’s.
The escaped prisoner was also linked to a number of robberies on the island including the January 16, 2011 robbery at Club Bananas in True Blue involving $30, 406.00, $29, 000 robbery last July of C-Tec gas station at Grand Anse, and robbery of entertainer Wayne “Waggy-T” Redhead and his wife of $1, 900.00 on June 12, 2011.
Stanisclaus is also facing a charge of possession of a firearm and ammunition along with Andy John that was found inside the driver’s door compartment of a green van on July 27, 2011.
