BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts child rape suspect who police say cut off a court-ordered GPS monitoring device and went on a cross-country crime spree has been captured after a month on the lam.

Massachusetts State Police say 26-year-old Gregory Lewis of Southbridge was caught just before midnight Tuesday in the village of Fort Edward, New York, after driving into the Hudson River while fleeing from a traffic stop.

Police say Lewis had a gun, but no shots were fired when he was apprehended.

He is expected to be arraigned Wednesday on a fugitive charge.

Lewis was released on $1,000 bail after his arraignment Aug. 6 on charges including statutory rape of a child. He fled Sept. 15.

He’s suspected of crimes in several states while on the run, including Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado and Oregon.

Lewis had recently been seen in Vernon, CT.
