  • Two men are on the run after escaping from a prison farm in central Queensland
  • Jermaine Anderson, 30, and Brian Tapim, 23, escaped on Saturday night 
  • Pair used a wheelie bin and a doona to scale the razor-wire fence of the facility

Two men are on the run after escaping from a prison farm in central Queensland with the help of a wheelie bin and a doona.

Prison authorities say the pair, Jermaine Lee Anderson, 30, and Brian Illington Trent Tapim, 23, left the Capricornia Correctional Centre some time on Saturday night and were missed at roll call Sunday morning.

The Rockhampton Morning Bulletin reports the pair used a wheelie bin and a doona to scale the razor-wire perimeter fence of the facility.

Tapim is serving six-and-a-half years for assault, having spent much of his life since he was 14 in jails for a range of offences.

Anderson is serving six years in jail for assaulting two taxi drivers in separate incidents in Rockhampton last year, during which he held a knife to their throats.

He’s described as 178cm tall of regular build with brown hair, a short beard and a southern cross tattoo on his neck.

Tapim is serving six-and-a-half years for assault, having spent much of his life since he was 14 in jails for a range of offences.

The 23 year old has been assaulted multiple times while behind bars, needing two metal plates to mend a broken jaw and on another occasion needing skin grafts after having his ear and neck bitten.

He’s described as 180cm tall of regular build with short brown hair.

A prison spokeswoman said both men still had some time left to serve on their sentences, however they may have been assigned to the low-security farm as part of rehabilitation programs.

Anyone with information about the pair is urged not to approach them but to call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
