An escapee from the Mission Institution, who is serving time for killing two young children in a Calgary firebombing, has been arrested in Saanich.

Sheets was arrested, without incident, in the 5800 block of Old East Rd in Saanich.

48-year-old Michael Sheets was arrested early this morning (Tues) in Saanich after police got a tip.

He was hiding in an outbuilding on a 17-acre farm.

Sheets is serving a 14-year sentence for manslaughter and arson, among other charges.

In 2004, he threw a Molotov cocktail into a Calgary home, which sparked a fire that killed two children, aged six and four.
