Escaped man captured in Chautauqua County

A Sinclairville man who escaped from custody a week ago after being charged on felony drug counts was apprehended by Chautauqua County Sheriff's deputies on Tuesday, according to authorities.

Jacob Raynor, 34, was found by authorities about 3:15 p.m., hidden in a crawl space under the floor at his home on Reed Street in Sinclairville, officials said.

He had escaped from custody on March 7.

In addition to a charge of second-degree escape, Raynor already faced a charge of unlawfully manufacturing methamphetamine in the third degree, as well as parole violation charges, according to authorities.

Raynor was arraigned in Charlotte Town Court Tuesday. He was remanded to the Chautauqua County Jail, officials said.

Additional charges are pending against Raynor, according to the sheriff's office.
