    Melissa Cutchin, 33, failed to appear in a Sarasota County, Florida, court in February on drug related charges, WCAX reported.

    She was sighted in Brattleboro, Vermont, and as authorities closed in, she jumped out of a window, then jumped rooftop to rooftop between high-rise buildings before she was eventually arrested, investigators said.

    Cutchin was previously arrested in August 2018 by Vermont State Police on an outstanding warrant and extradited to Florida, officials said. At the time, she posted bail and then returned to Vermont.
