Police still looking for possibly armed man seen near Ithaca College
The second suspect in a trespass complaint earlier today has been identified as Jason R. Fisher, 42, of Port Charlotte, FL. Fisher has not been located but could possibly be in the Ithaca area.
Fisher is described as a white male, approximately six feet tall and 190 pounds with blue eyes, balding, with a tatoo of two wavy lines on the front of his neck and a large blue star on the right side of his neck. He was last thought to be wearing a black t-shirt and black pants.
According to a release by the Tompkins County Sheriff's Office, on April 18 at about 9 a.m. the Sheriff's Office responded to a trespass complaint at 950 Danby Road in the Town of Ithaca. Upon arrival in the area deputies were advised that two subjects, a man and a woman, entered the wooded area directly behind 950 Danby Road.
The area is considered private property, and no one had authorization to be in the area. Deputies and officers from the Ithaca Police Department were able to locate the woman, Julie C. Holland, 27, of Port Charlotte, FL, a short time later in the City of Ithaca.
There is an arrest warrrant from the State of Florida for Holland, and as a result Holland was arrested as a fugitive from justice from the State of Florida. She was arraigned in the Town of Lansing Court and remanded to the Tompkins County Jail in lieu of $20,000 cash bail, $40,000 bond.
During further investigation into the incident deputies gained information that there were possibly two firearms in the wooded area at the scene of the original trepass complaint.
After searching the area for several hours with the assistance of the Ithaca Police Department K9 Unit, Cornell University Police K9 Unit, the Ithaca College Public Safety Office and members of the Tompkins County Sheriff's Office, two firearms, a hand gun and a long gun confirmed stolen from the State of Florida were recovered.
Anyone who has information on the location of Fisher can contact the Tompkins County Sheriff's Office at 607-272-2444 or on the TipLine at 607-266-5420. Staff reports Apr 18, 2017 Updated 1 hr ago
