Car Larceny Suspects Caught In the Act

WHEC-TV reports: Three Rochester men have been arrested for going through vehicles in the town of Greece.

Greece Police were called to the area of Stone Road and McCall Road around 10:22 p.m. on Sunday for three suspicious men possibly going through vehicles. Police arrested 25-year-old Bocar Seck and 17-year-old Mamadou Bah. Both are charged with criminal possession of stolen property. They were arraigned and are currently being held in the Monroe County Jail.

Police say the third suspect, 19-year-old Frederick Walker, was later arrested following a short chase. He's being charged with criminal possession of stolen property, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration. Police say Walker was on parole for robbery until November 29, 2011. Walker was arraigned and is currently in the Monroe County Jail.

An investigation found that all of the suspects had entered numerous cars throughout the area and were in possession of several stolen GPS units that were taken from unlocked vehicles.

SCATS ~~ Thank you to the alert neighbors who cared enough to call 911! Good job to GPD, too!


WHEC-TV also reports: A 23-year-old Rochester man is under arrest after police say he stole Red Bull and soda from Wegmans and resisted arrest.

Greece Police have charged Adalberto Alers Jr. with petit larceny, resisting arrest and false impersonation.

Police say Alers tried to leave the Mt. Read Boulevard Wegmans on December 5 with more than $200 worth of Red Bull and soda. When he was stopped by store security with police present, officers say Alers resisted arrest and repeatedly tried to reach into his picket during the struggle. Police say they recovered a razor blade from Alders’ pocket.

Investigators say Alers gave them a false name and date of birth and his identity could not be confirmed initially. Police were eventually able to learn Alders’ identity and found out that Alders had five outstanding warrants from other police agencies.

Alers was remanded to the Monroe County Jail and is awaiting several court dates for the outstanding charges in numerous jurisdictions.  

QUESTION: How is it that GPD took this thief into custody when he resisted arrest while he REPEATEDLY attempted to go for a razor blade in his pocket ... AND they did it without the use of pepper spray, a taser or gunfire? If he had been a dog, he'd be dead!

I witnessed the arrest. I say kudos to GPD for a job well done. But I am sure you won't post my comment because it's a positive one and we all know how much you love the town you live in.

To 4:09PM ~~ WHICH arrest did you witness? I already stated "Good job to GPD, too!" regarding the first story posted on the BLOG ... so please don't give up your day job to become a prognosticator yet ... leave it to those who can ;) lol

I have to say I have always had good experiences with the Greece Police. Perhaps I am lucky, perhaps I have never run into the cops who act badly. Maybe there are some who need some retraining. Let's not tarnish the good ones with the actions of the bad.

To 6:43PM ~~ I'm sorry, but the actions of the bad DO tarnish the good ones. Schamerhorn's name is at the top of the list. If the "good" cops would only be willing to police their brethren, we might be on our way to improved safety for all.

You really are out of touch. Scammerhorn has messed up but he also makes tons of DWI arrests keeping our streets safe. My aunt works with MADD. Also why would it be bad if they used pepper spray or a taser on this criminal?? I guess you know everything about everything or at least you act like you do! I have a lot of respect for what our police do and support them. Somehow everything is a conspiracy or a cover up to you.

To 9:29PM ~~ You're hilarious! I'm "out of touch" but you can't even correctly copy & spell Schamerhorn's name ;) Perhaps your misplaced emotions for Baxter are interfering with your ability to think clearly while attending to simple matters ... ?

I NEVER said they shouldn't have used pepper spray or a taser on this thief. My comment was to the effect that they DID arrest him WITHOUT using force AND despite the theatening motions towards his pocket, something which they couldn't manage without shooting a dog dead.

Good thing you haven't been in need of GPD, because they should taser you. Your antics border on the bullying side. Just remember KARMA is indeed a b--. And save your lame excuses about claiming to be a christian. You are a fake christian. Bad mouthing and bullying and gossiping are not christian like activities.

SCATS said...

To 9:37AM ~~ There you go making assumptions ... AGAIN! How do you know whether or not my family has ever needed to call the pd? Oh right. You don't ;)

My "antics" are certainly no worse than what you just posted :D At least I don't call people names (mental bankruptcy).

There's only one person I know who would call someone "a fake christian." By the way, Christian should be capitalized. Now go feed your overgrown mutt.

SCATS... Now you're stooping to doing what you've criticized others for. That is, instead of sticking to the "issues," you point out the spelling and capitalization errors of the poster. C'mon. You should rise above that!

Thanks for posting the mug shots. They make me smile.

Resisting arrest could be as little as the punk pulling his arm away when being held by an officer to actually fighting or running away.
As for the razor in his pocket, suprised he was charged with a felony burg. charge.
I am on the cops side and good work for Wegmans security to have the police there in time to be witness to the theft.
