ROCHESTER, Ind. -- A woman featured as one of Fulton County’s Top 10 fugitives was arrested Tuesday following several tips from the community.

According to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department, deputies received multiple tips about a wanted person possibly in a residence in the 200 block of East 550 North, between U.S. 31 and North Old U.S. Highway 31.
