LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Police say a Pike County man jumped from one 10th floor balcony to another to evade capture.

According to Mountain Top News, Jeremy Ratliff, 41, was found after having been on the run for two years. Ratliff was located inside a 10th floor apartment in the Shelby Valley area, but was taken into custody inside a different apartment after jumping from one balcony to the next.

Two other women, Anna Adkins and Angela Little, were also arrested after lying to deputies about Ratliff being inside the apartment.

Deputies say Ratliff was originally wanted on drug charges, but was also charged Friday with resisting arrest.

Adkins and Little were charged with hindering prosecution.
