Provincial police said Saturday night that the three escaped from the Orsainville Detention Center. They gave no other details.

Last year, a helicopter pilot was forced at gunpoint to pluck two inmates from the St-Jerome prison on a quiet Sunday afternoon.

Police caught the two escapees and the two suspects who hijacked the helicopter within a few hours of the escape.
