A Roscoe man who escaped from a police cruiser Feb. 12 was apprehended Friday.

Ramsey Hyslop, 46, of 913 Arthur St., was arrested on several drug warrants, and charges of escape and flight to avoid apprehension. He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Larry Hopkins in Charleroi and remanded to the Washington County Correctional Facility in lieu of $250,000 straight cash bond.

Details of his arrest were not available Friday night.

Hyslop had been on the run since RESA police arrested him Feb. 12 on outstanding warrants. Police found two bricks of heroin and drug paraphernalia on him when he was arrested.

Hyslop was handcuffed behind his back and placed in the rear of a squad car, and officers went back to question his girlfriend, Cheryl Bartus, and gather evidence.

That's when Hyslop supposedly pulled the handcuffs under his legs and in front of his body before crawling through a partition between the front and rear of the police cruiser and escaping.

Police from five municipalities and groups of firefighters searched for Hyslop for nearly four hours in Roscoe that night.

Hyslop is scheduled for a preliminary hearing 9 a.m. March 13 before Hopkins.
