Fugitive captured
Anthony Artrip
(WOUB) - Law enforcement agents say they've caught an escaped convict from Ashland, Kentucky who was in a standoff at a suburban Pittsburgh hotel.

Authorities say they used special tactics to get 35-year-old Anthony Ray Artrip.

Authorities say Artrip barricaded himself in the Knights Inn
hotel in Morgan when U.S. Marshals tried to serve him a warrant around 9:30 Monday morning.

He was apprehended shortly before 3 p.m.

Artrip escaped from jail in June while awaiting federal trial in Cincinnati on a bank robbery charge related to a holdup in Portsmouth, Ohio.
