Charges have been laid against the escaped Peace River Correctional Institute prisoner and the people who helped break him out of custody. 29 year old Harley John Lay was being transported to hospital on January 25th when he was taken by a masked and armed man and another driver.

All three were arrested the next day in Fort Nelson, B.C. after reportedly stealing multiple vehicles. His alleged accomplices have been identified as Laurie Slobozian and Lenny Grant Tecomba.

Out of B.C., Lay and Tecomba are both charged with failing to stop a vehicle being pursued by police in order to evade police and the robbery of a 2014 Dodge Ram truck. They and Slobozian are also charged with possession of property obtained by crime relating to a 2015 Dodge Caravan.

Out of Alberta, Lay is facing charges of escaping custody, while Slobozian is charged with assisting him to escape custody. Tecomba is also charged with that, along with assaulting a police officer with a firearm, committing an offence while masked, using an imitation firearm while committing an offence, and failing to comply with a probation order.
