LCN, the television station, showed images of a cottage where the men were believed to be hiding. Outside, the white Cadillac stood, its driver's side door open.
Six hours after the escape, police arrested three men.
One of them was Hudon-Barbeau. Police did not release the names of the other two.
But Provencal was still missing.
Several hours would go by before he too was in custody.
Police found him holed up inside a sugar shack in the same city.
He eventually surrendered early Monday morning.
All four men will appear in a court in Saint-Jerome Monday to face charges.
Escapes not unheard of
While spectacular, airborne escapes are not unheard of.
Albanian inmate Alket Rizaj broke out of a maximum security prison in Greece twice -- in 2006 and 2009.
On both occasions, accomplices swooped in to the prison's courtyard on helicopters and inmates climbed aboard using rope ladders.
Both times, Rizaj was recaptured.
Last month, another prison escape in Greece tried to use the same tactic.
But the plot was foiled when the prisoner was shot and the chopper was forced to land on the prison parking lot.
In 1971, Joel David Kaplan escaped from a Mexican jail aboard a helicopter. The New Yorker's flight inspired the book "The 10-Second Jailbreak: The Helicopter Escape of Joel David Kaplan" and the 1975 movie "Breakout."
And in France, Pascal Payet escaped not once, not twice but three times from French prisons.
Each time, he was recaptured.
