Albany fugitive captured in Binghamton

A fugitive from Albany was captured in Binghamton on Tuesday.

Jade Pittsley was under the supervision of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and was serving the remaining portion of her sentence at a halfway house in Albany.

Pittsley did not return to the facility on Nov. 16 and a warrant was issued for her arrest. Investigators developed information that she was in the Binghamton area and U.S. Marshals from Binghamton began an investigation.

They observed Pittsley leaving a retail store in Johnson City and arrested her when she tried to get into a nearby vehicle, U.S. Marshals said.

Pittsley allegedly had more than 40 grams of methamphetamines in her possession.

She was transported to the Broome County Sheriff’s Office and charged with narcotics possession.
