    Maine State Police say a fugitive who escaped police through a hole in his home in September has been arrested after a SWAT team standoff in Waldoboro.

    Brian Bennett was taken into custody at about 7:30 a.m. Friday. Police closed nearby Waldoboro Elementary School as a precaution.

    Police tell WCSH-TV they fired tear gas canisters at about 5 a.m., but fired no shots. No one was hurt.

    On Sept. 20, police went to Bennett's home to arrest him on a warrant out of Belfast District Court. They said he locked himself inside and escaped through a hole in the floor of his home.
