Greece Cop Gets Governor's Award; GPD Make Burglary Arrests

The D&C reports: Greece Police Officer Shaun Moore received a Certificate of Exceptional Valor from Gov. David Paterson on Wednesday. He was honored for his actions on Nov. 21, 2008, when he shot a Greece man who was trying to kill his wife.

"It takes a special person to commit his or her life to a career that is challenging, sometimes thankless, and as these officers’ experiences illustrate, extremely perilous. The job can go from routine to dangerous in a split second, as we are so vividly reminded today. It takes a unique blend of duty and courage to wear a police officer’s badge, and it is with great pride — and solemnity — that I present these awards." ~~ Gov. Paterson


Wayne D. Williams, 42, of Pittsford Street, was charged by Greece Police with burglary and grand larceny. Williams allegedly broke into a closed business on Stone Rd. Sept. 3 and stole property valued at approximately $4,000.

Randy L. Ross, 16, of Woodhill Dr. was charged with burglary, petit larceny & criminal mischief. Police say Ross broke into a residence on Lake Meadow Dr. & stole property valued at less than $1,000.

Brandon Mattimore, 24, of 700 Pine Trail, charged Sept. 6 with multiple counts of burglary in the second degree & grand larceny after allegedly breaking in to a number of homes in Greece. Mattimore allegedly stole approximately $16,000 of property. Mattimore was also interviewed for & charged with a string of burglaries at numerous residences in Honeoye Falls.
SCATS ~~ Way to go, Greece Police! Not so long ago, we rarely ever heard about crimes getting solved in Greece.

SCATS, it's good to see you finally supporting good Greece police officers and acknowledging the work they do to protect people. Now if you could just ease off Frank Oberg's back a little bit (he's doing the best he can) that'd be nice too. ;)

It used to be there was supposedly no crime in greece but we knew better. Now they are admitting to the existence of crime and violence and are solving the cases.

Way to GPD!!! Everyone in Greece knew we had crime here but Hairbuger and his partner in crime Rahn kept everything under wraps. Nice to know our new police chief has the stones to put it all out there and let the public know what is really going on in our town. And thanks officers for doing a stand up job!!!

Not for nothing, but I turned myself in. I appreciate everything police do on a daily basis as I now work closely with them. I was injured in Iraq and became addicted to opiates which led me down the wrong path. Seeing myself as a burglar was never someone I saw myself as being, so I confessed to all counts, even some PD did not even know about. I'm not taking anything away from these brave men and women, just stating my piece. Thank you.
