The Laurel County Sheriff's Office says one its most wanted fugitives is back in jail.

Investigators say 27-year-old Ryan Segraves was arrested at a house around 5:30pm Friday.

Segraves was then added to the list of the Sheriff's Office most wanted fugitives.

Segraves is now in custody facing several charges including Wanton Endangerment,2nd Degree, Escape and Fleeing And Evading Police.
