Blacksmith escapes jail cell

Escaped – Montreal Herald and Daily Commercial Gazette Jun. 4, 1872

On Friday a man named Henry Gauthier, a blacksmith, was arrested by the police for drunkenness, and lodged in Panet street station. After having been some time in the cells he managed to unfasten the door, and rushing into the street made his escape. The cells in this station would need looking to, as Gauthier is not the first person who has escaped from them.
