An inmate from Bowden Institution was captured in Calgary on Saturday after escaping the minimum security annex two days earlier.

Calgary Police arrested Dean McClelland, 46, at a home in the northwest neighbourhood of Bowness early Saturday night.

McClelland has been serving a three-year, eight month and 15 day sentence for mischief in relation to property, criminal harassment and arson.

Innisfail RCMP spokesman Cpl. Jeff Hildebrant said on Friday that McClelland walked away on Thursday sometime between 8:15 p.m. and 8:25 p.m. from the minimum security annex where there are no fences.

He posed a low risk to the public, said Hildebrandt.

Bowden Institution is a medium security penitentiary with more than 500 inmates and a minimum security annex of about 70 inmates.

The prison is located between Innisfail and Bowden.
