Seneca County Sheriff Tim Luce says the the crimes committed in this case encompassed the Towns of Fayette, Junius, Seneca Falls, Tyre, Waterloo, and the Village of Waterloo.

However, due to the size, scope and complexity of the crimes committed — investigators worked with members of the Geneva Police Department, New York State Police, Ontario County Sheriff’s Office, Seneca Falls Police Department and Waterloo Police Department.

Luce says that during the course of the investigation — three search warrants were executed — resulting in the recovery of numerous pieces of stolen evidence.



The following former Waterloo residents were arrested:
