Armed Robbery Near Northgate Plaza On Sat.

The D&C reports:
Three people in a car were robbed by a man with a gun in Greece this morning, Greece police said.
No one was injured during the incident, which occurred at about 10 a.m. near 3825 Dewey Ave.
The suspect fled the scene, police said.
Police are continuing to investigate the armed robbery.


SCATS ~~ This happened May 16th, according to the byline. Googling the address shows it to be the address of Wendy's across from Northgate Plaza. This "story" leaves me wondering about a lot of things. Another crack reporting job, NOT.

This is stunning news. Didn't our all powerful Supervisor just tell us things were positively great in Greece. There is no crime and the weather is always sunny.

It must be crime committed by one of John's enemies in order to make him look bad. We know these guys will stop at nothing to show up John.

To 11:59AM ~~ If you were to ask Lt. Wise about it, I'm SURE he'd tell you that because this is so near to the city border that it wasn't anything to be concerned about. Like the murder in Adeline Park, this is just another confused criminal who stepped over the city line by mistake while committing a felony during broad daylight in Greece.

Exactly how far is "close"
Northgate is not that close to the City border?

To 12:52 PM ~~ You'll have to ask Lt. Wise to define that for you. I suspect this is "close" enough to make excuses for it :)

Lt Dolt here, I speak for Lt Wise on all pubic relations matters, in fact I am Lt Wise when it comes to relating with the Citizens of Greece.

Unfortunately Northgate is only about a mile from the City as the crow flys, and we are launching an investigation into how this came to be. That part of the City was once Greece, but in years gone by the City somehow managed to take Greece land in exchange for educating the children of Greece free of charge. In conversations with the retired Swine 1 I have learned Greece lost the free education of its children due to an agreement between 2 drunk politicians, and Greece taxpayers are screwed.

Both the Department and I are relatively certain this armed robbery wouldn't have occurred if the donut shop formerly in that immediate area hadn't closed, because cars assigned to the donut shop would have frightened off the robber.

The interface for Superburger informs me this story is a nonstory and the Department has been instructed to form a taskforce to investigate the involvement of the Greece Democratic Party in bringing a misguided City Democrat Robber to Greece to attempt to embarras Superburger John and frighten Walmart. I have been instructed to personally look into ACORN conspiring with Northgate area residents in this regard.

Drug deal in the parking lot of Wendy's. What else could it be since Wendy's doesn't serve breakfast?? There is also alot of drug deals going on in the parking lot at Our Lady of Mercy.

Given the facts as we now know them, it's obvious that the credibility of the information provided in "reporting" crimes in Greece was, in all likelihood skewed, so that the representative powers that be could tout the "Safest Town in America' moniker across the county.

If you read the NYS Accreditation Report, you'll see that crime reporting WAS a past violation, but that it was corrected after being brought out. They probably kept a majority of things off the record that they didn't want anyone to know about. The proof? The handling of the Nick Joseph case. The fact that they have paid off on Schammerhorn and Pignato, and never let "us", the taxpayers footing the bill, know it had happened.

The Town of Greece is "SELF-INSURED". That means it comes out of our pockets directly.

4:29 Drugs in Greece!? Like gangs, it isn't true!!!!

I'm shocked nobody has blamed it on the transients in the apartments next door to Wendys.

No Drugs!! I bet there are many anti-depressants being taken at Greece Town Hall.

It is a common local news policy (not just here, but everywhere) to leave the names of local businesses out of a story like this and instead report just the address or an area: East side, Northgate area, 3000 block of Dewey, etc.

To 7:19AM ~~ Are you a spokesperson for national media?

Last December when Cricket on Stone Road was robbed it said Cricket on Stone Road or Dollar General on Dewey. So they do indeed give the business names.

Lt Dolt here again. Never let it be said Dolt is unable or unwilling to fully inform the voters. I have conferred with SuperYap Fiskers, and she has informed me I can tell you the donut shop on Dewey was never officially a police substation. It was on the west side of Dewey Ave, near Northgate. The new donut shop on Fetzner is not an official precinct either. The precinct that used to be located near Buckmans on Ridge Rd was officially formerly the garage behind the Town Hall when the Town Hall was on Ridge Rd. The new donut shop is owned officially by former Sgt now Inmate Joseph's brother who is an RPD cop. The donuts are good according to all reports.

There is no confirmable blood relationship between the RPD cop who owns the donut shop and any currently serving GPD cop.

Former DogCatcher now Building Inspector in cheif Osomethingoranother is also not related to anyone other than himself. GPD has been very dilligent checking out donuts in the intrest of public safety.

That is all I am at liberty to say at the moment. I will say more later. I am not him, but I do speak for him.

8:51 - but that happens when a crime actually takes place AT THAT SITE. That's not the case here. Or at least I don't think so!
