ST. ALBANS — The U.S. Marshals Service arrested fugitive Anthony Wayne Bray Wednesday after two months’ search.
Bray had an active arrest warrant since Sept. 10, according to a press statement the U.S. Marshals sent Thursday.
Bray was serving a furloughed sentence for burglary of an occupied dwelling at the time.
The Vermont Dept. of Corrections requested the U.S. Marshals’ help apprehending Bray on Sept. 26, according to the press statement.
The U.S. Marshals Service arrested Bray Wednesday morning in St. Albans without incident, according to that statement.
The St. Albans Police Dept., the Vermont State Police and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office participated in the arrest, per the press statement.
U.S. Marshal John Curtis wrote in the press statement that Bray “is no stranger to crime.”
According to the press statement, Bray has previous convictions for assault and robbery, escape from a law officer and escaping furlough.
Bray also previously tussled with the U.S. Marshals.
The Messenger reported in January 2018 that Bray barricaded himself in the crawlspace of a Rugg Street attic — then got stuck.
Local firefighters had to physically extract Bray from the attic’s rafters.
