A four hour standoff in the 1100 block of North 91st East Avenue ends with a prison escapee back behind bars.

Tulsa's fugitive squad and federal agents surrounded a home to search for Eric Bradford. Bradford was serving time for drug charges at a prison in Hodgen, Oklahoma, when he escaped in March.

After several hours of negotiations, Tulsa K9 officers were sent inside the home.

Bradford was found hiding behind a water heater and taken into custody.
