Okay, this is sort of a long one, so bear with me...
A Rochester teenager is facing charges in connection with the theft of property from unlocked vehicles in the village of Fairport.
Nathaniel J. Hoover, 17, of 91 Kislingbury St., Rochester, is charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, unlawful fleeing from a police officer, second-degree reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, unlawful possession of marijuana, reckless driving and numerous traffic violations.
Police said Sgt. Mathew Nielsen was driving on Dewey Avenue about 3:47 a.m. June 14 when he noticed a vehicle back out of a driveway with its lights off. Nielsen followed the vehicle down several village streets, pulling it over on West Avenue — along the Erie Canal — when the driver allegedly tried to drive through Kennelley Park, which does not have vehicle access.
And in a completely unrelated story--
Police received a report June 16 that damage was done to the railing and spindles of the gazebo in Kennelley Park, 2 S. Main St.
I think someone missed the inter-office memo...
