An unnamed guard was in a prison van transporting Adam Barton and Syd MacFarlane in January 2018. The prison van was stopped by Cain and Aaron Dingle. Cain breaks into the van, attacking the guards and handcuffing their hands behind their backs. Cain took Syd from his cell, making it look like Syd was responsible for the escape. Aaron waits for Adam outside the van, and Adam sneaks past the guards and manages to flee the village with Aaron and Cain's help.
