Troopers Interrupt Their Lunch Break to
Arrest Man Wanted on Bench Warrant

New York State Police don’t put their work aside even when they’re on a lunch break.

Troopers had stopped at a Gowanda sub shop for lunch on Thursday and saw a man inside they knew was wanted on an active bench warrant. After getting their food, they quietly confirmed that 24-year-old Joshua Bowers of Persia was still wanted and then arrested him.

While taking him into custody they found that he had a hydrocodone tablet and a small amount of marijuana with him. Bowers is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and is scheduled to appear in Collins Town Court later this month.

Troopers did not say if they got to finish their lunch.
