U.S. marshals arrested a pair wanted after one fled from authorities while being escorted to the Wyoming County jail nine days earlier.

New York State Police arrested Shane Macnamee, 32, after a traffic stop in Union, N.Y., on Sunday night.

Chelsea Robinson, 27, escaped from police then, but marshals arrested her Monday in Rome.

Authorities sought Robinson and Macnamee since May 5, when Robinson fled from law enforcement escorting her from the Wyoming County Courthouse to the Wyoming County Correctional Facility and ran to a waiting vehicle, believed to be driven by Macnamee.

Robinson and Macnamee have felony warrants against them - she for escape, and he for criminal conspiracy to commit escape and other charges, according to police complaints filed by Tunkhannock Borough Patrolman Dustin G. Cokely.

Robinson had visited the probation office on May 5 and was escorted to the jail after it was determined she violated a condition of her probation.

According to court records, she was four days shy of completing 12 months probation for a drug possession charge she had been sentenced to in 2016.

Robinson was arraigned Monday afternoon in Tunkhannock before Magisterial District Judge Carl Smith, who set bail at $50,000. Unable to post it, she was remanded to the county jail.

She has a preliminary hearing set for May 25 before Judge Smith.
