U.S. marshals take over Binsack case
Days after a fugitive on the run released a taunting YouTube video, U.S. marshals are taking over the search for Scott Binsack.
Binsack is wanted for a parole violation by the Pennsylvania Board of Probation, the U.S. Marshals Service Middle District of Pennsylvania Task Force announced Wednesday.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the U.S. marshals at a toll free, anonymous tip line 866-437-9847.
This summer, Binsack appeared at a Shamokin City Council meeting and unveiled plans to revitalize the city with a $13.4 million public offering of stock. Regulators with the state Securities Commission became aware of the unregistered offering.
According to the terms of his release, Binsack is prohibited from engaging in most financial and business transactions.
Binsack, formerly of Clarks Summit, was a homebuilder who was accused of shady dealings and unpaid bills. He pleaded no contest in July 2010 to seven bad check charges stemming from his work in Lackawanna County as head of Mansions & Estates LLC, and sentenced to time served. He was granted parole in April 2011.
