Mercer County Sheriff’s detectives traveled to upstate New York and the metropolitan Detroit, Michigan, area to round up two local fugitives who had left Ohio in an attempt to escape charges, Sheriff Jeff Grey said Wednesday.

On Feb. 10, two deputies flew to Albany International Airport in New York to bring back 22-year-old Daniel Morris. Morris was wanted for failing to show up for a pretrial hearing on an original charge of felony theft.
