ROCHESTER, Pa. - Authorities in Rochester have taken a wanted fugitive into custody following a chase Friday afternoon on Route 65.

He was taken into custody around 3 p.m.
Brown, investigators said, is wanted for violating parole, armed robbery and escape. Officials said he’s one of Pennsylvania’s 10 most wanted parole violators.
