MAYVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — A drug suspect is back in custody after bolting from authorities after a court appearance last week.

The Chautauqua (shuh-TAW-kwuh) County Sheriff's office says escapee Jacob Raynor was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon at his home in the western New York village of Sinclairville. Authorities say he was hiding in a crawl space under his floor.

Raynor appeared Tuesday in Charlotte Town Court and was ordered held at the Chautauqua County Jail. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

Investigators say they're looking into whether Raynor had help evading capture since March 7.
