Authorities said they have captured a man who fled a courthouse in the region after being sentenced to jail.

Officials from Mason and Lake counties said 21-year-old Dylan Hansen of Martin was arrested yesterday afternoon after escaping from the Mason County courthouse on foot Wednesday morning.

He had been sentenced to 292 days in jail for violating his probation for a domestic violence conviction.

Schools near the courthouse locked down while police searched the area.

Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said a deputy received a tip about Hansen's location. Authorities arrested him near Baldwin in Lake County.

Cole said Hansen is in custody in the Mason County Jail. No additional charges have been reported. It wasn't immediately clear if he has an attorney.

Cole told WWTV TV that courthouse security protocol likely won't change, because authorities don't have enough resources.
