UPDATE: Man featured as Fugitive of the Week now in custody

On The Lookout - Fugitive of the Week

UPDATE: On Tuesday, September 10th, Biddlecome was spotted by members of the Sheriff’s Warrants Squad in Eastwood. Biddlecome is now in police custody.

ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A couch surfer and a drug addict who steals to support his habit. That’s how detectives describe their fugitive of the week. He’s got a rap sheet too.

From the end of December to the middle of last July, Nicholas Biddlecome, 28, has been arrested multiple times, including getting caught riding in a stolen U-Haul truck on Interstate 81. They’re trying to catch him again, this time for being a no-show in drug court.

“My guess is, yeah, he’s probably running really scared because he knows that drug court is serious, and he screwed up, said Sgt. Mike Norton.

There is a criminal history: Busted 27 times in the last seven years. Here are the last four charges he faces:

  • On 7/15/2019, Biddlecome and three others were arrested for Possession of Stolen Property and Unauthorized Use for riding in a stolen U-Haul van on Interstate 81.  The van was reported stolen to Syracuse Police on 6/28/2019 from the U-Haul Moving and Storage on Erie Blvd E.
  • On 4/16/2019, two female associates were shoplifting at a Mattydale market and were being chased by the store owner, when Biddlecome and another male intervened and allegedly pulled knives on the store owner.  When he was arrested for the incident, he gave a false name resulting in a Criminal Impersonation charge.
  • On 2/5/2019, Biddlecome and a female accomplice were arrested by Cicero PD for Petit Larceny after they stole Redbull, milk and candy bars from a drug store.
  • On 12/29/2018, Biddlecome was arrested for Petit Larceny for stealing $300 worth of drinks, medication and candy from a store in Liverpool.

“He’s a heroin user, addict, he’s what we call a couch surfer. He flops and surfs from couch to couch, wherever he can find a place to stay,” Norton said.

Biddlecome is 5’10”, 175 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

“We really have no clue where he is at this point,” Norton said. “Any tip the public can give us, is going to be awesome.”

If you know where he is, detectives want to hear from you. You can call them at (315) 435-3032. All tips will remain confidential.
