DUNMORE -- A man who was wanted for murder in the state of New York has been captured in Lackawanna County.

Waverly Pleasant, 31, is facing second-degree murder charges in the Albany, NY region. U.S. Marshals initially believed he may have fled to the Scranton area, and their hunch was correct.

Pleasant was located and arrested Thursday afternoon along Electric Street in Dunmore. He will remain in the custody of local authorities until he is extradited back to New York.

      Wrong. Northeastern Pa. gets everyones trash. Lol. I live in a beautiful area of Pa., but that’s because I live nowhere near a burnt out coal slum that receives human garbage from N.Y. and N.J. Western/Central Pa. has some wonderful communities, provided you’re not Irish, Polish, Catholic, a deadbeat dad, a mouthy whore, a recovering alcoholic/drug addict, or a military washout, in which case you’re not welcome.
