PBA of New York State Acknowledges the Work of Stony Brook University Police Officers. Traffic stop leads to arrest of a woman with a felony extradition warrant from Florida.

The Police Benevolent Association of New York State Law Enforcement (PBA of NYS) is praising the work of its University Police officers, who conducted a traffic stop at Stony Brook University that led to a felony arrest.

Officers Chris Annunziato and Noah Fisch pulled over Kelly A. Shannon, 43, of West Babylon after she ran a stop sign on campus last Friday morning, April 28.

Police discovered Shannon had an active 2nd degree felony full extradition warrant for her arrest from Volusia County, Florida, for trafficking and dealing in stolen jewelry and property. She fled to New York after posting bail on those charges in 2012.

“Good police work has resulted in a career criminal being taken off the street,” said Peter Barry, PBA of NYS president and University Police officers director. “Officers Chris Annunziato and Noah Fisch are to be commended for their good police work.”

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office has asked University Police to hold Shannon as a fugitive from justice until she can be extradited to Florida.
