Oneonta Woman Arrested As Fla. Fugitive

ONEONTA – An Oneonta woman, Vickie E. Tolbert-Dwyer, 46, who allegedly fled from southern Florida last summer, was arrested Sunday afternoon at her 42 River St. home by Otsego County sheriff’s investigators as a fugitive from justice.



The Broward County Sheriff’s Office Extraditions Unit in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., alerted the sheriff’s office to the woman’s whereabouts and sent a 2013 violation of probation warrant for her, according to Senior Investigator Michael Ten Eyck, a spokesman for the local department.

Tolbert-Dwyer was without incident, Ten Eyck said.  She was arraigned by Town of Oneonta Judge Bruce A. Smith and remanded to county jail without bail .
