Prison escapee arrested at Quebec gas station

Prison escapee arrested at Que. bec


Dave Gingras-Gaudet, who escaped Thursday from the Quebec Detention Facility, was arrested this evening around 8 p.m. on Seigneuriale Street in the Beauport sector.

According to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), it was the SQ's tactical intervention group that grabbed him at a gas station. The 37-year-old man reportedly had no time to react, and the officers subdued him without anyone being injured.

The individual was taken into care by the Establishment of detention of Quebec and he is expected to appear tomorrow to face charges, among others, of escaping legal custody.

The paramedics went to the scene to assist the convenience store clerk, who suffered a nervous shock at the scale of the intervention of the special squad of the SQ.

Remember that the inmate took advantage of an outing in the outer courtyard of the prison to escape. Helped by two conniving prisoners, he then managed to breach the fence surrounding the building before fleeing on foot.
