LONDON (AP) — Police say they have caught an escaped British convict whose defiant online antics drew thousands of fans to his Facebook page.

Suffolk police say Scotland Yard recaptured Craig “Lazie” Lynch in southern England on Tuesday night after four months on the run.

The 28-year-old escaped from a minimum security prison in September and spent much of his time since then posting pictures of himself mocking the police on the Internet.

Police says Lynch has been charged with escaping from custody and is due to appear in court Wednesday.
