Drug trafficker facing death sentence escapes jail through sewage pipes . Three thieves broke into the home in Enfield, north London, escaped through a window and fled in the getaway car, the police said, making off with five guns that had been used in various “James Bond” films.

Cai had been planning this escape for five to six months, according to his cell mate. He dug the hole using tools from a construction project in the prison kitchen, Yunus said.

Cai had timed his escape to the changing of the prison guards, according to Indonesia Directorate General of Prisons spokeswoman Rika Aprianti.

Cai had been sentenced to death in 2017 for trafficking 135 kilograms (almost 300 pounds) of crystal meth, according to Indonesian news website detik.com. A police investigation found 70 kilograms (154 pounds) of meth hidden in chicken coop cleaner equipment.

This isn't Cai's first escape; in 2017, he broke out of a police detention center in Jakarta by breaking a hole in a bathroom wall. After this most recent escape, police are on the search, with Cai on their most wanted list.

Cai's representatives weren't immediately reachable for comment.

Prodemocracy protests consumed the city for months starting in early 2019, but the political climate changed abruptly in the spring, when Beijing passed a wide-ranging security law that many see as a crackdown on dissent. At the end of June, a few hours before the law went into effect, I walked outside to catch the last glimpses of protest around my neighborhood in Hong Kong.
