Two prisoners that escaped from Gilboa prison caught in Nazareth

Two of the six prisoners that escaped from Gilboa prison were caught in Nazareth on Friday night. 

Northern District Police officers recently captured two of the escaped inmates at Mount Precipice in the city of Nazareth, according to a police spokesman.

Police had found the two suspects after a citizen reported to the police station that he had been approached by them asking for help and food.

The fugitives tried to cover their faces so they would not be recognized, KAN reported.
