    Vermont fugitive

    is captured in Ala.

    BURLINGTON — The U.S. Marshal Service said a Vermont fugitive who has been on the run for about six weeks has been captured in Alabama.

    The Vermont Violent Offender Task Force said Gregory Abts, 31, of Burlington was arrested Friday in Birmingham, Ala., by deputy U.S. marshals.

    Authorities said Abts was serving the remainder of a 2010 sentence at a halfway house in Burlington when allegations surfaced that he had violated the conditions of his furlough and he fled.

    Vermont authorities worked with the U.S. Marshal Service and the Gulf Coast Regional Task Force in Birmingham.
