WARRINGTON, Pa. - The search for an escaped prisoner in Bucks County was called off because authorities believe he has left the area, police said.

Bucks County sheriff's deputies were transporting him Sunday night when they say Selby faked illness, got out of his leg shackles and ran off. He was in custody on a warrant for failing to appear at an unspecified court appearance.His last known charges were for drug offenses from Bensalem Township.
Residents in the Warrington and Chalfont areas were told to stay indoors, through that warning was lifted about 6 a.m. Monday.
Selby escaped near Bristol and Lower State roads and crews were searching for him in and around Neshaminy Creek using dogs and at least one helicopter.
Selby is described as being 6 feet tall, he was wearing prison garb and was handcuffed.
