Former Binghamton Man Arrested After Crime Spree
Police say a man sought as a parole violator is the suspect in a series of crimes in Broome County and in other states.
Authorities say 61-year-old Donald Fike was arrested by New York State Police in Steuben County.
Vestal police had released surveillance video images of a man who had committed larcenies in the Binghamton area.
Investigators say Fike, who once lived in Binghamton, was taken into custody in the town of Corning. He was charged with two counts of criminal possession of stolen property.
Fike was found driving a Nissan Xterra with stolen Florida license plates.
Detectives say Fike is wanted in Arizona for violating parole and in Oklahoma in a property theft case.
More charges are expected to be filed by Vestal police, the Broome County Sheriff's Office and Pennsylvania State Police.
