He was found less than five hours after corrections officials say he escaped from Dorchester.

Police allege he stole a car and assaulted the driver in nearby Memramcook.

MacLean, from Dalhousie, N.B., was serving a sentence of more than nine years for a number of offences including armed robbery.

Police say MacLean will appear in court at a later date to face charges in connection with the escape.
