Creech failed to appear in court for the necessary proceedings, and on Oct. 11, 2023, the Saratoga County Court issued a bench warrant for his arrest.  The investigation determined Creech had allegedly fled New York and was residing in South Carolina.   In a joint agency effort, Creech was located in North Augusta, SC and on May 28, 2024, the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office took him into custody.

Creech was extradited and returned to New York by New York State Police Investigators on June 11, 2024, and turned over to the custody of the Saratoga County Correctional Facility to await arraignment.
