NOTES & FACTS FROM THE POLICE BLOTTER
Thomas Jones, who joined the Reserve Police Unit in 1973 was
chosen as Officer of the Month for June.
Tom is also a part time dispatcher with the department
but has always been our local/in-house computer wizard.
For years he has come in on his off time to help other
employees with computer entry or format problem, he was
selected and honored as he is an asset to the department.
- Police arrested a former Orchard Park man after
an alert neighbor reported seeing someone in a neighbor's home
that was suppose to be vacant. Police stopped the
individual as he attempted to drive away in the homeowner's vehicle.
A search of his person produced a narcotic for which he was also
charged and Possession of A Noxious Substance when a container
of Pepper Spray was located in his own vehicle.
- Investigated 3 cases of Criminal Mischief that
occurred at three local cellular/radio transmission tower buildings.
A fourth building, located on Jennings Road in N. Collins
received considerable damage also.
Nearly $50,000 damage was done at the Eden sites and
it was estimated that $500,000 worth of equipment was destroyed
in North Collins. Besides the damaged equipment, a
considerable safety hazard to aircrafts was caused because of
the unlighted towers. Evidence found at the scene is presently
- While checking on vandalism found
at the Eden High School, police found where the
school building had been entered. School personnel
reported a box of graduation gowns with the caps and
hoods and other items missing. Since police have located
and arrested one individual for possession of some
of the property and expect to arrest more shortly,
restitution of $2,465 is expected to be made to the School
for the stolen items and another $50 to clean the obscenities
painted on the school sign.
Six children were recently injuried in a neighboring Town,
when the pick up truck they were riding in overturned.
As the number of incidents of youth riding in the back of
trucks seems to be increasing, I'd like to remind
everyone that under most circumstances it is illegal.
To be legal, there must be suitable seats, securely
attached to the body of the truck, there must be side racks
at least three feet in height above the floor, and it shall have
an attached tail gate or board which is securely closed.
To have in excess of 5 people under the age of eighteen
in the back, one person over eighteen years of age must
also ride in the back of the truck.
Members of the department wish to thank the Schummers
of Schummers Eden Edge for the beautiful plants donated
for front of our office and thanks to Matthew Spence for planting them.
