Mall Thieves Chased In Stolen Car


Crash Ends Escapade At Mt. Read & 104
Four Arrested

WHEC-TV: A robbery at the Greece Ridge mall led to a crash on Sunday, and the car involved was stolen.
Officers say they arrived to the mall just before 2 p.m., and they saw four young women running from the mall and get into a car. Police say they tried to pull them over, but they took off and eventually crashed at the corner of Mount Read Boulevard and Ridge Road. Investigators say they ran the license plate and were able to determine the car had been stolen.
We spoke with Cassie Johnson, who owns the car, at the scene of the crash. She said her car was taken Thursday night on Portland Avenue.
“Me and my family have been riding through the city, and we’ve seen them riding in it, but we can’t seem to catch them. So look, this is what happened,” said Johnson.
Police say no one was injured in the crash.
Officers recovered several stolen items from the car. We’re told all four girls in the car at the time have been taken into custody.

Maybe just 4 more City @#$%heads looking to get into GCSD schools?
Or another Gang initiation?
Shoot first if your a suburbanite, wait to ask if your a City dweller and tolerate this Cr@&!!

Nothing more than your routine city dwellers on a "shoplifting" day in Greece.

SCATS said...

To 7:02AM ~~ I've got some news for you. There are PLENTY of Greece residents with similar "shopping" habits! Our Town Court is loaded with them.

Tell me something I don't know. I was referring to this particular incident where we have a stolen car from the city involved. What you say is true but if you check further you will find most Greece residents arrested for shoplifting are recent inhabitants of Greece who formerly had city addresses.

To 2:01PM ~~ How would you know they recently relocated to Greece? What I saw was mostly young folks & single mothers.

Why did the police have to chjase them in a stolen car??

How would you know they weren't Maybe you saw the arrest reports, Single mothers, how do you know that as well.
Unless you have proof, you are merely speculating as 2:01 is doing. Right.

SCATS said...

To 10:45AM ~~ Nope, not speculation on my part. In some cases, the women were concerned about the care of their kids since they were spending at least a night in jail. In other cases, the judge questioned them about the circumstances of where they live, how long they lived there, etc.

Oh so now you claim to be in court to hear and observe all these alledged facts is that what you would have us believe? LOL

SCATS said...

To 7:31AM ~~ I've been there and done that while following a couple of specific cases through. Have you?? It's eye-opening.

Been there, done that, more than a couple of times and my take away was a lot different than yoursA LOT DIFFERENT in fact as to who and where and how long the majority of these thieves were.
I'm sorry, but a couple of experience you may have had, is not a true reflection of what is really taking place in this town regarding shoplifting especially at the Mall. A situation that has been taking place in this town ever since it was built years ago, as well as who the usual suspects were and remain to be. The one big difference , they don't have to drive as far to ply their trade.

SCATS said...

To 10:46AM ~~ You will "take away" whatever you WANT to take away. I'll bet your experience wasn't very recent either! Mine were.

Yes, I'm aware the mall has been a playground for petty thieves for a long, long time. Therein lies a difference between the shoplifters filling Greece's courts today compared to even 5 years ago. The stores of choice in Greece are: Wegmans, Walmart, JC Penney & Sears. If you read the police blotters in the papers you would see that what I say is true.

When they live in Greece, they can even walk.

Scats Thanks for making my point in your last sentence.As for the scope of my knowledge, I retired 2 years ago from the Court clerks office. So I'd say my experience in these matters far exceeds your limited knowledge
I can even make you aware of facts known to me and others in that position. There are three types of people engaged in these thefts. First timers caught committing their first offense. Compulsive shoplifters who continue until they are always eventually caught with the new security cameras in the businesses you mention. And then there are the" career professionals" who continue these acts even after they are caught. These are the ones that I was referring to. They are well known to us and the cops as well as another factor, where they live.
Would you believe a majority of these repeaters used to have city addresses but no longer. They have moved to Greece. The records are clear on this point and well documented.

To 2:52PM ~~ Thanks for making MY point in your second sentence. My experience was much more recent.
