Runaway Ebola Suspect Arrested, Quarantined  

By John Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, September 15 (LINA) - Police in Pleebo, Maryland County have arrested an officer of the Bureau of Immigration who went into hiding after he was suspected of contracting the Ebola disease.

According to a police report quoted by the Liberia News Agency, Officer Winston Isaac, who is currently assigned in Karluway District, was on the run for about a week before he was arrested.

He earlier refused to report himself to health authorities to be tested of the disease.

The BIN officer is said to have taken care of his fiancée in Monrovia, who later died of the Ebola disease.

He reportedly fled Monrovia on board a truck back to Maryland County where police mounted a search for him in Pleebo where he reportedly hid himself.

Officer Isaac was finally arrested by police and turned over to health authorities who have quarantined him for 21 days.
