Fire alarm pulled, yet again, at Hillside in Varick

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports that on January 26th 2012 at 1600 hrs Sheriff’s Deputies arrested a 13 year old Town of Varick resident for Felony- Criminal Mischief in the 3rd degree and Falsely Reporting an incident in the 2nd degree. The charges stem from when Sheriff’s Deputies responded with the Varick Volunteer Fire Department to a fire alarm activation at a residential facility on State Route 96a. While investigating the fire alarm Deputies discovered that a 13 year old had activated the fire alarm with no fire or threat of a fire. Additionally it is alleged that the 13 year old also broke the handle off of the fire alarm, when the alarm was activated. Sheriff’s Deputies issued appearance tickets to appear in Seneca County Family Court at a later date.
