Andrew Cuomo
ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo thanked and congratulated law enforcement late Sunday night for the capture of escaped prisoner David Sweat.

Sweat's capture Sunday afternoon brings an end to the three-week-plus search for Sweat and fellow escapee Richard Matt, who was killed on Friday while being sought by New York State Police.

The governor, standing before a crowd of law enforcement officials, said "the nightmare is over." He thanked law enforcement for their "tireless efforts over the last several weeks."

Tere were approximately 1,300 federal, state and local law enforcement members involved over the 22-day search. Agencies active in the search included: Forest Rangers and Conservation Officers from the Department of Environmental Conservation, officers from the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, the FBI, U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Plattsburgh Police, Vermont State Police, the Clinton, Essex, Franklin and Washington County Sheriff’s Departments, and the Clinton and Franklin County District Attorney's offices.

Cuomo's speech can be seen on YouTube, below.
