NEW BRITAIN, CT (WFSB) -

A man who sparked a weekend Amber Alert out of New Britain has been arrested across state lines.

Police said 36-year-old Patrick Miles was arrested in West Springfield, MA on Wednesday.  

Patrick Miles was wanted on two warrants that were issued on April 8 for probation violation.

Miles was the cause of an alert that went out overnight on April 8 during which police sought 2-year-old Paisley Miles, who was taken from a condominium on North Mountain Road.

Paisley was dropped off at an aunt's house in Brooklyn, NY.

Patrick Miles is also identified as a potential suspect in the shooting death of 33-year-old Yasheeka Miles, which happened on April 7 at the condo.

On Wednesday morning, Patrick Miles was arraigned in Massachusetts on a fugitive from justice charge. He is currently being held “without the right to bail” and has waived extradition to Connecticut. His bonds total $350,000.

Patrick Miles was expected to be brought back to Connecticut on Wednesday or Thursday.
