NOTES & FACTS FROM THE POLICE BLOTTER
  • Shawn Bishop was awarded Employee of the Month. Shawn's work with the house burglary and the solving of several criminal mischief complaints involving splatball guns, mail box vandalism, and the damage to the bus stop was time consuming, yet very effective. A great assistance to Shawn and the department, was the help from the citizens - those that reported suspicious incidents at the time.

  • Police have investigated a house burglary that occurred on Zenner Road. Taken were two guns, cash, coins, and jewelry. The owner had left the home for only an hour and found that a door had been kicked in upon their return. Surrounding towns are all having a rash of daytime burglaries at the present time.

  • A Hardt Road resident found a deer slug lodged in an interior wall after she began investigating the source of a strange noise she had heard. The home owner originally had thought a house pet had knocked something over only to find the slug had passed through a double pane window and her curtains before embedding itself in the wall. After hearing the breakage, she saw three hunters leave the field behind her house and get into a black pickup truck and leave.

  • A number of ATV thefts have been reported recently in Western New York. One on Bauer Rd, and two on Sisson have been reported in Eden. A possible fourth attempt was made on Belknap when the home owner apparently scared the individual away. Surrounding counties have been plagued by this complaint. Most have been taken from owners' yards although some have been in barns. Some taken right out of trucks or off trailers. Police recommend this property be stored inside and secured by lock.

    Police responded, late December and early January, to a number of complaints from land owners and snowmobilers of certain groups trespassing and others of unsafe operation on local trails. Police patrolled the trails on two evenings and 5 summons were issued for parks and recreation violations, not 60 as some are saying. The officers reported a general acceptance from the groups they met afield.
