A massive search is now on in St Catherine following a jail break at the Portmore police station this morning.
It is reported that around 4:30 a.m., the police were conducting routine checks of the cell when they realised that the five inmates were missing.
They reportedly escaped by cutting the bars and grille at the ventilated area in the cell.
A search has been launched with the assistance of a helicopter to recapture the prisoners.
In recent times overcrowding has been a problem at the facility.
The police have since released the names of the five escapees.
