An escaped convict who taunted British police on the internet has been caught after nearly four months on the run.

Craig Lynch was rearrested by Scotland Yard in southern England on Tuesday night.

Lynch was serving time for burglary at a minimum security prison in Suffolk.

He escaped on Sept. 23 and has spent much of his time since posting defiant photos of himself mocking the police on the internet.

The ensuing media attention drew as many as 40,000 fans to his Facebook page and other associated fan sites, spawning T-shirts and even a tribute song.
