AN escaped prisoner has been recaptured by police.

Joseva Nadomo was captured at a vacant house in Vesi Crescent in Lautoka yesterday by police after being on the run since Tuesday.

Police West spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said Nadomo's recapture was the result of a tip-off from a member of the public.

"He was arrested around 7.40am and the circumstances that led to his arrest were through information given to us by members of the public," she said.

"The Fiji Police Force wishes to thank the general public at large for their co-operation that led to the recapture of Joseva Nadomo."
