NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a drug suspect who escaped from a New York City police station last week has been recaptured.

Arthur Collins was arrested Monday and charged with escaping jail.

Police say the 57-year-old took off from a stationhouse in Harlem Friday evening.

He had been arrested earlier in the day after officers found him in a Madison Avenue apartment building without permission.

They say he had cocaine, heroin, marijuana and a firearms silencer. Police say he escaped while the officers were processing his arrest.
