Dallas Albert Rain escaped with three others on June 12; Rain was the final suspect caught

Police have arrested Dallas Albert Rain more than two weeks after escaping the Red Deer Remand Centre.

Rain, 28, was found and arrested in the Rocky Mountain House RCMP detachment’s jurisdiction around 12:45 p.m. Friday afternoon.

“We hope to have everyone feel a bit more at ease, which is why we got the information out very quickly – he’s been arrested and in our custody,” said Cpl. Laurel Scott.

Rain started a 30-day sentence June 6 for mail theft, resisting a peace officer, mischief and failing to attend court out of Rocky Mountain House.

Scott said people in the province, particularly in Red Deer and Central Alberta, were probably concerned by the remand centre breakout.

Police aren’t disclosing Rain’s exact location at the time of his arrest at this time.

Rain and three other prisoners broke a window and escaped the remand centre June 12.

Police learned of the escape around midnight – three suspects were arrested later in the day, but Rain remained at large until Friday.

Two of the escapees, Quinn Russell Peterson and Douglas Brian Power, were captured after a stolen pickup truck was spotted in Red Deer County.

The vehicle was followed from a distance and eventually parked in a field east of Penhold. The two men then stole an ATV from a nearby yard.

After driving the ATV into a parked police vehicle while trying to break out of a police containment, the two suspects fled on foot.

One of the men was caught by a police dog and the other was captured by an Innisfail RCMP General Investigation Section officer.

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.

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.
