NEW PALTZ, N.Y. (AP) - Police investigating a suspicious vehicle on a Hudson Valley road last week ended up finding an upstate New York man who’s a South Carolina fugitive awaiting trial on attempted murder charges.

Police in New Paltz in Ulster County say 19-year-old Daniel Tozzi of nearby Highland was taken into custody April 14.

New Paltz police say they were investigating a suspicious vehicle on a dead-end road when they found out Tozzi was a fugitive. Official say he went missing from Horry County, South Carolina, on March 7 after cutting off his electronic monitoring device.

Police in South Carolina say he’s awaiting trial on charges including attempted murder, arson and robbery.

Tozzi is being held in the Ulster County Jail pending extradition to South Carolina. It couldn’t immediately be learned if he has a lawyer.
