Trumansburg schools were placed on lockdown Wednesday as police searched for a suspect that escaped their custody the night before.
Andrew Jacobsen, a former Trumansburg police officer, was arrested Tuesday night on a warrant for grand larceny. According to Trumansburg police, Jacobsen asked if he could go outside and smoke a cigarette while he was waiting for his booking. Jacobsen, who was not handcuffed, pushed a police officer and then took off running.
Police from multiple agencies looked for Jacobsen throughout the night and day Wednesday before finally taking him back into custody in Spencer around 7 Wednesday night.
