Four prisoners escape from Red Deer Remand Tuesday

One escapee from Red Deer Centre is still at large.

Red Deer RCMP said they were alerted at 12:15 a.m. Tuesday that four people had escaped.

Inmates who escaped included: Quinn Russel Peterson, 26; Dallas Albert Rain, 28 and Douglas Brian Power, 52, from the minimum security unit.

Rain is still at large while Peterson and Power were recaptured Tuesday afternoon.

According to police, the inmates broke a window and escaped.

Police said Peterson and Power were captured Tuesday afternoon after a stolen pickup truck was spotted in Red Deer County.

The truck ended up parked in a vacant field east of Penhold on Range Road 265 near Hwy 42. Then the two suspects stole an ATV from a nearby rural yard.

Police said the ATV ran into a parked police vehicle while the suspects tried to break out of the police containment. The two suspects then fled on foot.

One suspect was apprehended by a police dog and other was captured by an Innisfail RCMP General Investigation Section member. Both were wanted on outstanding warrants for prison breach and being unlawfully at large.

Peterson had been in the Remand Centre since Sept. 1, 2017, serving a 440-day sentence for multiple offences in Innisfail, Camrose, Rimbey, Ponoka, Didsbury and Red Deer. He was serving his sentence for property crimes, probation breaches, weapons and drug charges.

Power had been in the centre since March 9, serving 150 days. His convictions were for break and enter, theft, possession of stolen property, drug possession, resisting a police officer and failing to comply with a court order. Those incidents occurred in Red Deer.

Rain had not been in the centre long as he started a 30-day sentence June 6.

The sentence was for mail theft, resisting a peace officer, mischief and failing to attend court out of Rocky Mountain House.
