CORNING, N.Y. (WETM) – For the second day in a row, New York State Police K9 “Bobby” helped Troopers arrest another man with seven active warrants in Steuben County.

When Vanzile noticed police, he allegedly fled on his bike, got off and then ran down an embankment on foot. K9 Bobby located and apprehended Vanzile, according to police.
Vanzile had three active warrants through NYSP Painted Post, one through the Village of Bath Police Department, one through the City of Corning Police Department, one through the Village of Painted Post Police Department, and one through the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office.
