Police have apprehended an inmate who escaped from the Stony Mountain Institution’s minimum security unit.
CTV News Winnipeg previously reported that staff members discovered Aban Galin’s escape during the 9:45 p.m. count on Sunday, Oct. 4.
The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) notified the RCMP detachment in Stonewall, Man., and police issued a warrant for the inmate’s arrest.
Winnipeg police said they found Galin around 5:10 a.m. on Monday.
Galin is currently serving a three-year, three-month and 29-day sentence for a possession of a schedule one substance, possession of a weapon contrary to a prohibition order, possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm with ammunition, possession of a firearm knowing it is unauthorized, and careless use/storage of a firearm.
Galin has also served sentences for fraud, break and enter, possession of property obtained by crime, and other related offences.
Stonewall RCMP said Galin is back at Stony Mountain Institution and is facing charges of escape and being at large.
The charges have not been tested in court.
The CSC is investigating the incident.
