RCMP officers have captured a 20-year-old federal inmate who escaped from custody at Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital on Saturday.
Douglas Bruno John was taken into custody in St. Paul, Alberta after a short pursuit in a stolen truck was ended by police on Highway 29. Police said no injuries were reported.
John fled from the hospital around 1:40 p.m. Saturday and made off in an unoccupied truck that had been left running at a nearby home.
He had been in custody at Edmonton Institution serving a sentence for armed robbery. The two guards who accompanied John received minor injuries in the incident and were treated at the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital.
