New York State Police say 32-year-old Matthew Perry of Cortland, who was considered armed and dangerous and was last seen in Tioga County is in custody and being on the run from police is not the only issue.

Troopers early April 9 announced Perry's capture.

In a statement, State Police said: Matthew O. Perry was into custody without incident in the town of Tioga.

"Police presence and fire personnel will remain in the area for several hours.  Perry’s vehicle caught on fire at the dead end of Brooks Road yesterday and (the fire) spread to a vacant home and area around it.  
More will be released as it is available.  It is still an on-going investigation. "
In the original advisory Perry was described as a white man, standing six-feet, two-inches tall and weighing about 215 pounds with short-cropped dark hair, blue eyes, a full beard and mustache and a distinctive, large, winged tattoo on his neck.
