Two convicted bank robbers were charged with parole violations after Saugerties police stopped their vehicle for traffic violations, officials said Sunday.

Marion L. Barringer, 57, of West Hurley, and Patrick Mackey, 44, who told police he was homeless, were arrested at 7:41 p.m. Saturday on Route 9a in the Town of Saugerties after police said their names were flagged in a database check.

Police said Barringer was wanted on an arrest warrant for parole violation in South Carolina, where she had been convicted of bank robbery.

Mackey, who had a driver's license with a Raleigh, N.C., address, was wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service for failing to report, police said.

Both were arraigned in Town of Saugerties Court and remanded to Ulster County Jail without bail, police said. Barringer was charged with being a fugitive from justice, and Mackey was charged with violating parole based on the U.S. Marshals Service warrant.

Barringer and Mackey also reportedly were convicted in a 2005 bank robbery in Shrewsbury, Mass.
