Parole absconder nabbed while doing laundry in long, black wig, armed with knife

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Department of Correction says a convicted forger who absconded from parole in north-central Idaho was arrested while doing laundry at a Moscow-area laundromat. Corrections officials say 25-year-old Stephen Andrew Edgeman of Moscow was wearing a long, black wig and carrying a knife when he was arrested by Moscow police on Wednesday evening. Edgeman's criminal record includes grand theft and forgery convictions in Latah and Kootenai counties. He was released from prison under supervision and declared a fugitive on Sept. 18 after failing to check in with his parole officer. The agency made the search for him a priority after he reportedly made credible threats to kill law enforcement officers. He now faces revocation of his release on parole.
