An escaped convict, spotted in the Yorkton area last week, has turned himself in to authorities.
Steven Briggs went missing from the Saskatchewan Penitentiary in Prince Albert, Sk. on New Year’s Eve, being found missing at around 10:00 p.m. that evening. He was later spotted in the Yorkton area on New Year’s Day at around 4:00 p.m., driving a stolen truck owned by the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC).
On Jan. 6, the CSC reported via Facebook that Briggs had been recaptured. He turned himself in to staff at the Bowden Institution in southern Alberta at around 3:00 p.m. that day.
The CSC continues to investigate the circumstances behind the incident.
