BACOOR CITY – A closed circuit television (CCTV) footage shows three inmates on the run after bolting a detention center here Friday afternoon.

The CCTV footage from Barangay Talaba IV here captured moments when the inmates were running away from the city police's custodial center and past the barangay hall around 4:30 in the afternoon.

The men were in civilian clothes and had no footwear.

As of 11 a.m. Saturday, eight of the 23 inmates were back at the Bacoor City Police Custodial Center, while police continued to hunt for the remaining 15 fugitives.

Six of the inmates were rearrested in manhunt operations, while two others were surrendered to police by their families.

Meanwhile, Supt. Vicente Cabatingan, the Bacoor City Police chief, has ordered the relief of the jail warden and eight jail guards, including a non-uniformed personnel, who were present when the jailbreak happened.
