On Friday, the Broome County Sheriff’s Office took action based on information collected by the U.S. Marshal’s Service Regional Fugitive Task Force. The information indicated that a 17-year-old male, who was wanted in connection with the deaths of two men in Mount Holly, North Carolina, was located in the Town of Union.
Following a valuable tip, investigators were able to secure a search warrant from a Broome County judge for a residence located at 122 Pierce Ave. in Union.
The search warrant was executed by the Southern Tier SWAT Team, which includes members from the Broome and Chenango County sheriff’s offices and the Endicott Police Department.
The authorities apprehended the fugitive, but his identity was not disclosed due to his age. He was arrested without any resistance.
