The search took high tech, low tech, and good, old-fashioned police work but, in the end, police got their man even though he was hiding in the woods.

When troopers arrived they say that the suspect, who had already left the scene, was identified as 41-year-old Roy L. Searles of Newfield, New York.  Searles had previously resided in the state of Louisiana, where he was wanted on active warrants.

The Search

According to a written release from the NYSP, "New York State Police K9’s and a drone searched the area.  Troopers and members of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation were assisted by numerous law enforcement agencies including the New York State Park Police, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Tompkins County Sheriff’s Deputies and Schuyler County Sheriff’s Deputies."

Police say a trooper in a wooded area off of Rumsey Hill Road saw Searles.  He was then tracked a NYSP K-9 just after 2:00pm and taken into custody.
