Broome County Sheriff's Office

Authorities say an anonymous caller tipped off the Broome County Sheriff's Office that 31-year-old Matthew Bateman was staying at an apartment on the North Side of the village.

Sheriff's deputies and Endicott police officers went to the North Rogers Avenue residence specified by the tipster and found Bateman. They took him into custody without incident.

Bateman was said to be the "most wanted" person by police in Shelby County, Ohio.

Bateman was arrested as a fugitive from justice on charges of assault and escape. He was arraigned in Union town court and sent to Broome County Jail to await extradition proceedings.
