That same night, another prisoner made a run for it from Belize City police. 24 year old Sherman Rodney was detained pending investigation of a robbery and theft.

According to police, Rodney was taken to the KHMH for medical treatment as he was complaining of severe pain to the left arm.  Once at the hospital, a nurse took Rodney into a room for the treatment.

When the nurse exited the room, the officer that escorted Rodney to the hospital went into the room to check on the prisoner; but Rodney was nowhere to be found.
