ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A NewsChannel 9 viewer’s tip pays off big time for Onondaga County Sheriff’s Detectives on the hunt for the fugitive of the week.
Travis Carter was caught Thursday morning, hiding out in a home in North Syracuse.
NewsChannel 9 put viewers on the lookout for Carter this past Monday.
Carter has broken probation rules after admitting to ripping people by not finishing work he was hired to do at people’s homes.
“So you caught him?” Christie Casciano asked.
“We did,” replied Sheriff’s Detective Dan Tavolaro. “He was hiding inside the trunk of a vehicle that was inside of a garage. Prior to us getting there, he was up in the attic. And once he heard us, he came down from the attic, climbed into the trunk of a car. Closed it and stayed there until we found him.”
Carter makes catch number 455.
