ELYRIA, Ohio– A man who escaped from the Lorain/Medina Community Based Correctional Facility is back in custody.

Lorain County Sheriff’s officials said Gregory Lee Tillman came into the office lobby on Wednesday.

Tillman barricaded himself into his room at the Murray Ridge Road facility and used a padlock to break the window. He climbed out and got away undetected.

The sheriff’s office used dogs to track him to the parking lot of a nearby school, where they lost his trail.
