Two Oneonta residents who allegedly absconded from parole were captured in Nebraska on Tuesday.

John Shaw, 42, and Lisa Knoblauch, 28, were found by Nebraska state troopers in a 1996 International truck reported stolen from a New York construction company, according to a media release from the Nebraska State Patrol.

A traffic stop was made on a local road off Interstate 80 in Dawson County after troopers received a report of a woman acting suspiciously at a nearby truck stop, troopers said.

Shaw, a Level 3 sex offender, was driving the truck, police said. He was released on parole this year after serving a four-year sentence for molesting a 4-year-old boy and a 3-year-old boy in Otsego County. Shaw was recently listed on the state Division of Parole's Most Wanted List.

Knoblauch, formerly of Richfield Springs, served several years in state prison for a second-degree assault conviction. Knoblauch put plastic wrap over a 2-month-old baby's mouth in 2005, causing respiratory failure, according to an indictment in Otsego County Court. She was released on parole in April but arrested in June by Oneonta city police for allegedly making a false written statement.

They are being held in Nebraska on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of stolen property.
