SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. – After three days on the run, a man is in jail in Seminole County.

Ridgh Achille was on the run since last Friday, and officers finally caught up with him Monday night in Orlando.

Officers were taking Achille to the Seminole County Jail Friday night after Altamonte Springs police reported he shoplifted a pair of sunglasses at the mall.

The 19-year-old complained that he got claustrophobic in the back of the squad car, so the officer rolled down a window. Achille managed to open the door from the outside and took off, authorities said.

Investigators from several departments joined in the massive three-day search. They cornered Achille in Orlando around Anderson and South Conway, chased him down and took him into custody again.

Achille’s first appearance is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at the Seminole County Jail.

Achille also had a warrant for his arrest for a burglary in Orange County, authorities said.

The Florida Department of Law Enfocement, Orlando police, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and Altamonte Springs police all took part in the search for Achille.
