Geneva seeks public help involving burglaries

Following several recent and late 2015 residential burglaries in the areas of North Street, East North Street, and Genesee Streets, Chief of Police Jeffrey Trickler reminds all residents to keep their doors and windows locked. Please report any suspicious incidents to the Geneva Police Department. The Geneva Police have obtained surveillance video and is looking for the public help in identifying the attached male subjects who are suspects in approximately 15 residential burglaries in the City of Geneva. Preliminary investigation revealed the homes sustained both forced entry and entry through open windows, including screen cuts. The male suspects knock on the doors of the residence, ascertain if anyone is home, and if no contact with a person or dog is made, they use an exterior door or window entry. The suspects travel as a pair, utilize backpacks to hide any proceeds from the crime, and use all hours of the day and night in the burglary. Geneva Police Department is actively following up on many leads, use of video surveillance, GPS data, and neighborhood canvas. Chief Trickler encourages anyone with information about the suspected burglaries to call the Geneva Police dispatch line at 315-789-1111. Tips can also be sent anonymously through email @ tips@geneva.ny.us or Lt. Heieck erh@geneva.ny.us Det. Choffin bchoffin@geneva.ny.us or the TIP Line @ 315-789-0096.
