Scranton, PA – United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
announced today that the United States Marshals Service (USMS) arrested
Scott Binsack, a 43-year old man, in Bath, New York.
Binsack was being sought on an arrest warrant issued by the Pennsylvania
Board of Probation and Parole on November 5, 2012.
Binsack was on state parole supervision based upon his sentencing in Monroe
County in 2001. This stemmed from Binsack being convicted on multiple counts
of theft and fraud-related charges.
In June 2011, Binsack was released on parole from the State Correctional
Institution in Dallas.
Shortly after the issuance of the fugitive warrant on November 5, the USMS
Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania adopted the case.
On November 20, U.S. Marshals developed information that Binsack may be
hiding in upstate New York. During the late evening hours, U.S. Marshals
located and apprehended Binsack at the Budget Inn in Bath, New York. The
fugitive was arrested without incident. Binsack was lodged in the Steuben
County (NY) Jail, awaiting court proceedings concerning his extradition to
United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The successful ending of this
intense search for Scott Binsack is an example of federal and state
authorities working together. The United States Marshals Service is
dedicated to locating and apprehending those persons who have no respect for
the criminal justice system.”
U.S. Marshals were assisted by several agencies that comprise its Middle
District of Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force. This included officers from
the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole and the Lackawanna County
Sheriff’s Office. Assistance was also provided by the New York State Police.
The concept of all USMS-led fugitive task forces is to seek out and arrest
the nation’s most dangerous and violent offenders.
