During an investigation the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Unit developed information that Bryant fled New York and was now residing in the State of North Carolina.

An address of where Bryant was living was learned and a lead was sent to the US Marshal’s Service and the Durham Police Department in North Carolina.

On March 15, 2022, members of the US Marshal’s Task Force and the Durham Police Department responded to the given address in Durham, NC and found Bryant.

He was taken into custody and held at the Durham County Detention Center, pending extradition.

On April 22, 2022, Bryant was extradited back to New York and on April 25, 2022, he was arraigned in Oneida County Court and sent to the Oneida County Correctional Facility.
