Registered sex offender escapee captured

A man who police say escaped from the Pulaski County Courthouse last week, is back in custody Monday night.

Registered sex offender Gary Wayne Courtney was captured in Kenton County.

Police were able to track his cell phone to catch him.

After the escape last Thursday, investigators say Courtney made his way inside a home in Somerset and stole a woman's car.

Police found that car Thursday night but were not able to locate Courtney until Monday night.

He has been taken to Pulaski County, where he'll face escape charges.
