LIVINGSTON COUNTY – After a six-day cooperative manhunt by numerous law enforcement agencies, Mount Morris resident Richard ‘Boo’ Henry was taken into the custody of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday.
“Thank you to all the residents for your patience and confidence in us,” tweeted Sheriff Dougherty.
Henry was sought after allegedly injuring a Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputy while Deputies were trying to arrest him for an alleged parole violation, and running off into the woods while still zip-tied. Sheriff Dougherty said that Henry had removed his zip-ties within hours of fleeing from Deputies on Friday.
“Richard had a dirty urine test and failed to report in to parole, so two of our Deputies responded to his camp behind his mother’s house ,” said Sheriff Dougherty at the time of Henry’s escape. “One Deputy handcuffed Henry’s hands behind his back, and he forced the Deputy into the camper in an attempt to escape, and the Deputy suffered a twisted knee which led to tendon damage. We’ve had prior dealings with him before. This is what he does, he runs from law enforcement.”
The search included approximately 70 members of law enforcement from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, State Police, Environmental Conservation Police, Mount Morris Police Department, Federal Marshals, Border Patrol, Department of Homeland Security, and New York State Division of Parole.
Henry was released from prison in January after serving at least 3 years at Wyoming Correctional Facility for Attempted Burglary in the Second Degree.
