A 16-year-old who fled the county courthouse in Beatrice has been captured.

Officials say the boy had just been sentenced and was in handcuffs when he got away from a Gage County deputy and ran out of the courthouse about 2 p.m. Thursday.

Three nearby schools were locked down as a precaution during the search.

Officers using a police dog found the boy about two hours later, hiding in a garage off an alley. He didn't resist officers when he was taken into custody.
