Convict who escaped from jail in 2008 picked up in Dorval

A convict who escaped from jail six years ago was picked up by the Montreal police in Dorval Wednesday morning.

It was tips from the public that led police to pick up 52-year-old Paul Charles Edward Husband on de L'Église street where he was working construction.

SQ spokesperson Ronald McInnis says he disappeared from Laval's Montée Saint-François prison while on a day pass from the jail on June 29, 2008.

“He was authorized to leave but he never came back,” McInnis said.

Police say he did not resist arrest.

They will not say what he was serving time for, which will determine his sentence.

“He will appear in court for the escape.”
