A man who escaped police custody in northeast Saskatchewan earlier is back behind bars.

Twenty-two-year-old Keith McCallum was being escorted to a parked police vehicle on May 4th after a court appearance when he fled on foot. As a result of the escape, a warrant was issued for McCallum’s arrest on a charge of escaping from lawful custody.

On Thursday, RCMP officers in Deschambault Lake located and arrested McCallum.
