A DOC detainee briefly escaped from custody Friday while at the Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness center by asking a caretaker if he could go outside to smoke.
The caretaker told authorities he escorted Dravin John Joseph Quinata outside and that’s when Quinata ran. Police say that the detainee jumped over the fence line at GBHWC and ran towards Oka Payless area.
The caretaker and a security guard chased and held Quinata until police arrived.
Quinata was at GBHWC as part of a court ordered assessment.
He was charged with Escape from Custody as a misdemeanor and re-confined.
This was his second escape from DOC custody.
The Department of Corrections has not yet responded to a request for comment.
