Authorities say they've captured a man in Indiana who escaped from a county jail in northeast Iowa.

The Delaware County Sheriff's Office announced Wednesday that Timothy Reynolds was captured in Lafayette, Ind. The U.S. Marshal's Service and Indiana authorities arrested the 20-year-old without incident while he was hiding in a basement crawl space.

Reynolds escaped from the Delaware County Jail in Manchester on Nov. 18. Authorities say he assaulted a jailer and stole his sport utility vehicle during the escape.

Reynolds will be held in Indiana pending extradition back to Iowa.
