Live 5 Most Wanted fugitive surrenders to authorities


Authorities say a 25-year-old man who was sought by state probation and parole agents surrendered Thursday night.

Young, a convicted burglar, was wanted for a probation violation. Young stopped reporting to his probation officer in August, 2012.

"He could have gone to prison for three years but the judge felt that he was a good candidate for probation and put him on probation for two years," explained Agent Mitchell Ray. "He was reporting, was in compliance, suddenly stopped."

Agents went out to look for Young but couldn't find him.

"Did and onsite home visit. Nothing has been able to turn up Mr. Young's whereabouts," Ray said.

A warrant was issued for Young's arrest.

"It's not a violent charge and you would expect folks to follow up with their probation and parole obligations," Ray said.
