Town of Vernon, N.Y. — The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) is looking for a suspect who recently fled a stolen vehicle in the Town of Vernon.

The OCSO responded to the Town of Vernon to assist the NYS ENCON Police with a reported stolen vehicle from the City of Utica, said Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol in a news release Monday.

The vehicle in question crashed at the intersecti­on of Beaver Meadow Road and State Route 5, Maciol said. The driver then fled on foot into the wooded area to the north.

During the course of the next 5-6 hours, the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, NYS Police, Utica Police, and ENCON Police conducted a search of the wooded area, according to the sheriff’s office. Police said they were able to identify the male that fled the scene as 36-year-old Gregory Brown.

He is described as a black male, bald, 5’11”, and 190 lbs. Brown is wanted on Felony Warrants as well as fleeing from the motor vehicle crash.

Brown has yet to be apprehende­d, and the sheriff’s office is asking for the public’s help in finding him.

If the public has any informatio­n of the whereabout­s of Brown, they are asked to contact 911, the sheriff’s office at (315) 736-0141, or Crime Stoppers.
