Fugitives attempt to row to freedom

Posted: Updated:

St. Albans police say they nabbed two fugitives after a failed attempt to flee in a rowboat.

An officer was on patrol on Maquam Shore road Saturday just before noon when he spotted John Vincelette and Jessica Labelle in the boat.

When officers attempted to make contact the pair rowed deeper into St. Albans Bay. So police called state fish and game wardens who intercepted the row boat and turned Vincelette and Labelle over to authorities.

Vincelette was wanted for escaping from furlough. Labelle had multiple outstanding arrest warrants for drug sales and false pretenses. Both remain behind bars Monday.
