MONTREAL—Francis Boucher is facing three new charges after surrendering to authorities following several days on the lam.

The son of former Hells Angels boss Maurice (Mom) Boucher was charged this afternoon with identity theft, escaping lawful custody and being unlawfully at large.

He walked out of Montreal’s Bordeaux jail on Monday while serving a four-month sentence for uttering death threats against police officers.

His lawyer said today he believes his client left the institution after his name was called out instead of that of another inmate named Boucher.

The 39-year-old Boucher will remain in detention pending a bail hearing on Monday.

He was previously sentenced to 10 years behind bars for gangsterism, conspiracy to commit murder and drug-trafficking.
