A woman in her late 20s will be produced at the Lautoka Magistrates court tomorrow for allegedly harbouring escapee Josaia Leone since his escape from police custody last month.
Police say the accused is Leone’s partner and information was gathered that the two were staying in a cave up in the Saru Hills in Lautoka.
A raid was conducted by the officers and the woman was found.
Police says the woman has been charged with one count of harbouring an escaped prisoner.
Officers continue the search for Leone who escaped from the Nadi Police Station with two others last month.
Anyone with information is requested to call Crime Stoppers on 919.
The other two escapees Nacanieli Bakata and Ilaitia Vuivuda were arrested last week.
