Conklin, NY (WBNG Binghamton) An outstanding warrant led to the arrest of a brother and sister after the brother was found hiding in her Conklin home.

New York State Parole had an outstanding felony parole warrant for grand larceny for Raymond Copp, 35, of Johnson City.

The Broome County Sheriff's Office and NYS Parole received a tip that he was at his sister's house on Stillwater Road.

Whey they arrived at the home, nobody answered Lynette Copp's, 24, door. But police said they could hear people inside and could see young children sleeping.

When police entered the home they found Copp hiding under a bed. They say he would not obey police commands and resisted arrest. A Taser was used to get him out from under the bed.

Copp was sent to Broome County Sheriff's Office Correctional Facility.

Lynette will return to the Town of Conklin Court at a later date.

Parole warrant for grand larceny
