Barrett was arrested at a Walmart in Cicero, N.Y. after investigators discovered she frequently visited the store.

Deputies also found and arrested Hector Mercado on Dec. 2 after finding the Utica man at a residence in Buffalo. Mercado, 52, was wanted on an Oneida County Superior Court indictment warrant for failing to register as a sex offender. He was held at Oneida County Jail awaiting arraignment in Oneida County Court on Dec. 3.

U.S. marshals also assisted in capturing Mercado.
