 MONTREAL (AP) - Three men who escaped from a Canadian prison by helicopter two weeks ago have been captured.
    
Quebec provincial police say the fugitives were arrested by police investigators accompanied by a SWAT team early today in a condominium building in Montreal.
    
The three were awaiting trial on charges that included gangsterism and murder when they escaped from a prison outside Quebec City on June 7.
    
Police say further arrests in the case are likely as the investigation continues. They did not say how they finally found the fugitives, who are due in court in Quebec City tomorrow.
