Wanted Upstate New York Man Found Hiding, Camping On State Land
For nearly a half-year US Marshalls searched for a fugitive of justice in the woods in Upstate New York. He was finally found.
In this week's DEC Forest Rangers - Week In Review the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced a wanted man was found hiding on New York State land.
Fugitive Search: Town of Arietta, Hamilton County
The DEC didn't say the man's name but for the past five months Forest Ranger Lieutenant Kerr and Rangers Hamm, Nally, and Thompson assisted the U.S. Marshals Service in the search for a wanted fugitive from Gloversville.
The unnamed man was wanted on a parole violation and suspicion of making bomb threats, officials say.
Officials believed the 35-year-old was living in the woods on state land with minimal outside contact.
