Gilbert, Ivree Hooper, 25, of James Street, Albouystown, and Derrol James, 22, of Lot 131 Middle Walk, Buxton, escaped from the Golden Grove Police Station (also called Diamond Police Station) at around 18:00 hrs on Tuesday.

Gilbert was also charged in 2012, and later jailed in May 2013, for an armed robbery in which a toy gun was used. He was wounded in 2015 by another inmate while incarcerated at the Georgetown Prisons.
