We're learning more about the capture of Lexington fugitive John Buckley IV.

Police in Laramie, Wyoming say officers first tried to take him into custody Wednesday afternoon on South 3rd Street.

Investigators say after he got away, a perimeter was set up.

According to police, Buckley was later seen hiding behind underbrush and a dirt berm.

Investigators say he tried to run again but was subdued by officers and taken into custody.

Authorities began looking for Buckley last July after he reportedly cut off a monitoring bracelet on his ankle and walked away from Fayette Circuit Court.

He disappeared right before a jury declared him guilty of rape and sodomy.

Police believe he has been in the Laramie, Wyoming area less than a week.

Laramie Police say Buckley was turned over to the US Marshal’s Service for transport and release to Kentucky.
