Bank Rob Fugitive From New York Nabbed at Oregon Frisbee Tourney

Oregon cops showed up at a Frisbee game and made an epic grab over the weekend, snaring a fugitive wanted for a 2010 bank robbery. Jahson Marryshow, of Woodstock, N.Y., was arrested at an "Ultimate Frisbee" tournament in Eugene, Oregon, after being on the lam for four years.

Marryshow is wanted in connection with an armed robbery of a Bank of America in Woodstock in 2010. The Ulster County Sheriff's office also said Marryshow stole a car and set a barn on fire, allegedly as a distraction from the robbery.

On Sunday, Eugene Police received a tip that Marryshow, 31, was in their city as a wanted fugitive, and "information developed that he was going to be playing ult Frisbee at Amazon Park," police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin told NBC News. Eugene cops actually learned from detectives in New York that Marryshow loved Frisbee.

"He’s an Ultimate Frisbee fanatic," said Eugene PD Sergeant Wayne Dorman, who was there with U.S. Marshals when the fugitive did almost bolt. "He took a step like he was going to run, but we had him pretty much surrounded, so he gave up pretty quickly." Marryshow then admitted who he was and told cops he’d been in Oregon for four years.

Marryshow was being held in the Lane County Jail on Monday, pending extradition.
