The three inmates who escaped from a Canadian jail by helicopter were found at this apartment in Quebec on Sunday. The men escaped from a detention centre near the city on June 7th. Police said they were sleeping when officers swooped on their hideout and they didn't resist arrest. All three were on trial for drugs offences at the time of their escape. They're also facing murder charges. Their escape was the second by helicopter in Quebec in as many years.
