An East Pittsburgh man who made the Allegheny County Sheriff Department's list of “Most Wanted” fugitives for violating terms of his release has been arrested in Somerset County, sheriff deputies said on Monday.

Jon Daniel Edwards, 32, who was convicted of a variety of crimes including burglary and endangering the welfare of children, was found at a home in Windber, sheriff's Cmdr. Kevin Kraus said. Deputies received an anonymous tip about his whereabouts and asked Windber police to check on the home, he said.

Edwards, who will be charged with drug possession in Somerset County because Windber police found him with illegal narcotics, will be returned to Allegheny County, Kraus said.
