Life on the lam didn't last too long for Jose Vasquez.

Vasquez -- who was arrested by police on Wednesday on drug charges, and then escaped while handcuffed in Center City -- was nabbed earlier tonight in Kensington.

Members of the 24th District's Burglary Detail Team spotted Vasquez's car on Indiana Avenue near Front Street and set up surveillance, said Officer Tanya Little, a police spokeswoman.

When the 21-year-old showed up a short while later and made his way towards his car, the cops moved in. Little said Vasquez was rearrested without incident.
