SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla.- The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office Fugitive Apprehension Unit, working in conjunction with the U.S. Marshal Service, has captured Scott Allen Northey in Lakewood Ranch.
Northey, who is wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and has active warrants in at least two states, had been on the run since February 29th when he failed to appear in United States District Court in Michigan to be sentenced for Bank Fraud.
Northey, who is also known as Vincent Nardoni, was taken into custody without incident Thursday just after 6:00 p.m., at a home on Rivers Bluff Circle. Northey is also wanted in Sarasota County for violation of probation stemming from a 2010 case in which he defrauded M&I bank of nearly $30,000.
Northey has an extensive multi-state felony criminal history dating back to 1988 for check fraud and wire fraud. Most recently he is accused of stealing $500,000 from a construction project for a Detroit cheer program.
