LONDON, Ky. (WKYT) - Members of the Laurel County Sheriff's Department Special Response Unit caught a wanted escapee Friday night. A news release from the sheriff's office says deputies arrested 27 year-old Ryan Segraves around 5:30pm at a home. The arrest was the result of a tip through London –Laurel Crime Stoppers.

Deputies charged Segraves with wanton endangerment, escape, fleeing and evading police, and numerous other charges. He had been placed on the Sheriff’s Most Wanted list after a short pursuit along Brown Road on July 31, 2013.
