(WBNG Binghamton) Steuben County investigators catch up to a woman who has been on the run for the past four months.

Deputies said Billie Joe Ribble, 35, formerly of Bath, was in hiding everywhere from Corning to Albany, and even south of the NewYork border.

She was wanted for stealing $12,000 in property from a Town of Howard home, including 15 long guns.

Deputies and Pennsylvania State Police arrested Ribble after receiving a tip that she would be meeting someone in Tioga County,Pa., to get money to stay in hiding.

Ribble is currently jailed in Pennsylvania pending an extradition hearing.

The investigation is continuing and deputies said more charges are pending.
