GPD Arrest 9 On Larceny, Burglary Charges

Greece police arrested nine people on larceny charges before the sun came up Friday morning.

Shortly after midnight, officers saw a suspicious vehicle on Olivia Drive and after investigating, accused the three occupants of taking nearly $1,000 in property from numerous vehicles on the street. The three face petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property charges.

About 5 a.m., officers responded to a burglary call on Old Meadow Drive and found a vehicle fleeing from the area.

Police stopped the vehicle and arrested five adults and a juvenile. The suspects are accused of burglarizing the residence twice and are also accused of burglarizing a home on St. Andrews Drive. They face burglary and grand larceny charges.

Police recovered more than $2,000 worth of property at the scene and from a residence on Malvern Street in Rochester.

They don't dare headline it with pictures because then the GPD will be aaccused of being racist. At least with the St. Andrews arrests.

Does this mean we actually have crime in Greece? Or does this mean we always had crime but the PD couldn't catch anyone?

I would imagine with many burglaries the perps flee the scene before anyone can get any info on them...but it looks like people are paying more attention to their surroundings and calling when they see suspicious activity...because that's what it takes.

Whatever happened to all those "Neighborhood Watch" signs we used to see posted?

People are sick and tired of hearing people say nothing can be done about the young punks that infest some of our streets and neighborhoods after dark. We're the "safest town" but have so much unsolved crime. Larcenies, vandalism and burglaries don't make me feel safe.

So they found stolen items on Malvern St in the city. Does that mean there is a connection to the thieves they picked up in Greece? Or is that random? Or is that sentence the result of sloppy editing at the D and C?

the D&C doesn't edit

6:54 appears to be making an unrelated accusation on a person's identity which has nothing to do with this thread.

I guess that's back to being ok here now. Or is it just for "certain" people in a "certain" party working for a "certain" political candidate.

God forbid people actually support our police department. Sorry but I don't agree that it should be eliminated or turned into a metro force. Too bad some Democrat town candidates do.

To 9:44AM ~~ Are YOU the person mentioned? WHAT "accusation" was made?

There are a few people who claim to be "above" anonymous postings. I don't believe them ;)

Our police Department makes arrests everyday. The town supervisor believes that advertiseing these events in the paper would have an adverse effect and provide residents with information that would give his administration a black eye.
Instead the lack of communication to the resident's does the opposite, it isolates everyone.
As a resident if I know that something is occuring in my community that risks the safety of residents I would be more diligent in looking out for my neighbors.
Its all about votes

To 1:56PM ~~ The same thing tends to happen in the school district too. So much dirt gets swept under the carpet that the carpet is 6" off the floor now.
