More charges may be laid in last month’s jailbreak in Regina.


The last of the six men who fled the Regina Correctional Centre has been recaptured.


25-year-old Ryan Agecoutay gave himself up after a four-hour standoff with police at the Star Blanket reserve yesterday.


The Mounties say shots were fired at the officers, but no one was hurt.


RCMP Sgt. Carole Raymond says investigators are now looking at people who may have aided the escapees while they were on the lam.


Noel Starblanket, an elder on the Star Blanket First Nation, says ever since the breakout on August 24th, residents of the reserve have been talking about the case.


Starblanket says Agecoutay knew a woman who lived on the reserve.
