QUEBEC CITY, Quebec, Canada (CTV Network/CNN) - There's been another jailbreak in Canada using a helicopter.

The latest incident happened Saturday night in Quebec City, at the Orsainville Detention Centre.

Police say three men busted out and escaped in a green chopper.

There's no word what their crimes are, but police say they are considered dangerous.

In March of last year, two inmates broke out of St. Jerome Prison after two others forced a helicopter to pick them up. They were all caught within hours.
