Hunt for city fugitive ends

— SUNBURY – A hunt for a city man ended this morning when Brian Badman turned himself in to authorities at approximately 9:30 a.m., Sheriff Bob Wolfe confirmed. The search began Monday when Brian Badman, 29, walked out of the Northumberland County Courthouse prior to being sentenced Monday.

State police helicopters and the U.S. Marshals Service searched Wednesday night for Badman.

Badman was scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Charles Saylor, but when his case was called, Badman couldn’t be located. Saylor immediately issue a warrant.

Badman was arrested in October after police said he and his brother, Damian Badman, knifed Shawn Snurkowski, 26, of North Sixth Street, and Amber Edwards, up to 10 times.

On Monday, Sunbury police and county deputy sheriffs teamed with county adult probation officers in trying to locate Brian Badman, but they could not find him.

By Tuesday, the search increased, and with no luck, the U.S. Marshals Service was called for assistance.

By late Wednesday night, state police helicopters hovered over the city trying to locate Brian Badman.

More details to come.
