Broome County Sheriff’s officials say they stormed a home April 19 with information that a man wanted for an armed robbery in the Town of Chenango was in the area.

Broome County Sheriff’s officials say 29 year old Kareem Gibson is accused of stealing money from someone at gun-point at around 9:30 p.m. on April 17 on Castle Creek road near Upper Front Street in the Town of Chenango. 

The Sheriff’s Office, Binghamton Police and the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force arrested Gibson and charged him with robbery.
