Fugitive arrested after traffic stop in Cattaraugus County

LITTLE VALLEY – A traffic stop early Wednesday in the Cattaraugus County Town of Conewango led to the arrest of a man sought by authorities in Indiana since 2013.

Timothy B. Walsh, 28, of Jamestown, was pulled over at about 1:20 a.m. on Route 62, the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office reported. The circumstances of the stop weren’t disclosed.

At that time, deputies learned that Walsh was wanted on a warrant issued in Bartholomew County, Ind.

According to the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, Walsh was accused in early 2013 of stealing items worth several hundred dollars from an employer. In June of that year, an arrest warrant was issued after he failed to show up for a court appearance on the felony theft charge, an official said Thursday.

Following arraignment on a fugitive from justice charge in Randolph Town Court, Walsh was sent to the county jail without bail, pending extradition to Indiana.
