BETHLEHEM — Bethlehem police arrested a 39-year-old Manhattan man on Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 8:17 a.m. in relation to an out-of-state indictment warrant.
William Sanchez had been driving a tractor-trailer on Feura Bush Road when police pulled him over for a violation of the Vehicle and Traffic Law.

Sanchez was taken into custody and transported to the Bethlehem Police Department; he was then arraigned at the Bethlehem Town Court as a fugitive from justice and for disobeying a traffic control device. He was remanded to the Albany County Jail without bail by Judge Ryan Donovan and has a scheduled return court date of Tuesday, Mar. 5 at 4 p.m.
