  • Forty-four people were arrested, mostly for violations of the New York State Penal Law, including 2 Felonies, 40 Misdemeanors and 44 Violations for a total of 85 charges. Eleven of the 44 people were arrested for DWI.

  • The Detective Bureau reports an increase of check and credit card related larcenies. Crimes of this nature usually allow a person ample time to steal money before an actual larceny is even reported to law enforcement officials.

    During August of this year, the Detective Bureau received a report of a stolen insurance company check that was cashed at Evans National Bank and the perpetrator received over $2,800. The crime was never reported until a month later and was discovered when the victim had inquired as to why he never received his payment for an insurance claim filed with his homeowners insurance. Bank and insurance company records did show that a check had been sent and cashed.

    A Detective Bureau follow-up investigation located two persons who were involved in the check larceny and who did cash the check. The outcome of their investigation will result in the arrest of two Angola people and felony charges are going to be filed with Evans Court. The two subjects to be charged did admit to their involvement in the crime.

    Dog Control

      Twenty appearance tickets were issued from the Dog Control Office.
