NORWICH – A fugitive who jumped his posted $1,000 bail after being arrested on a 14-year-old warrant was arrest again Thursday and remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility in lieu of $200,000 cash bail.
The Sheriff’s Office had been seeking 37-year-old Joseph N. Wright of the Coventry and Greene area since August 2009, reported Lt. Richard Cobb.
Wright was wanted on charges of third and fourth degree grand larceny after allegedly “swindling several victims out of ten of thousands of dollars through contracting and fraud schemes,” said Cobb.
He was picked up by the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office in Remsen on Aug. 5.
Wright was originally arrested in February of 2009 and was remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility on $1,000 cash bail by Supreme Court Justice Kevin M. Dowd in a March 2009, court appearance.
