Video: Police capture prisoners who escaped by helicopter

After two weeks on the run, police in Canada have now arrested three prisoners who escaped by helicopter.

A SWAT team found the escapees during a raid in a Montreal condo early Sunday morning. Police are still looking for a couple other people, including the owner of the condo where the men were found and at least one possible accomplice who helped them escape back on June 7. 

The men were reportedly put under lighter security measures shortly before they escaped.

USA Today says the men were arrested during a drug trafficking bust in 2010. Once they made their daring prison break, they were placed on top of Interpol's most wanted list.
