North Syracuse Police Activity – Year to Date

Greetings from your North Syracuse Police Department. Please stay safe in this hot and humid weather. 

We would like to encourage you be sure to take your valuables out of the car and lock them, particularly when they are parked outside overnight.  Yes, there has been a few thefts from cars in the village and surrounding areas outside the village.  We also had about a dozen bronze metal flag holders stolen from the cemetery. So if you have seen or heard anything let us know.  We appreicate your eyes and ears helping us to keep the North Syracuse community safe.

The following is a little information we’d like to share about  activity of the Village Police Department so far this year.

 January to date the Police Department investigated a total of 71 property damage and personal injury accidents.  We are glad to report there were no fatalities. In the same time period we issued 404 traffic tickets including 42 Driving While Intoxicated arrests and 20 parking tickets.

 The Department responded to 2,497 calls for service, in this same time period, the most significant felony crime being   the Solvay Bank robbery last Friday, June 15, 2012.  Working in cooperation with the Sheriff’s Office the suspect was arrested that same evening. Kudos to our officers and the Sheriff’s for their quick and cooperative work effort that resulted in that arrest.

 June 20, 2012, North Syracuse Officers responded to a prowler complaint behind the Malta House. Having previous occurrences in that area of thefts from Mr. 2nd, Officers approached from different directions and caught two suspects attempting to leave with stolen property from Mr. 2nd, while a third suspect escaped on foot. Subsequent investigation resulted in the arrest of all 3 suspects, revealed the individuals were suspects in a Sheriff’s investigation in the Mattydale area earlier that day and that they were in possession of property stolen in the City of Oswego, that had not been reported yet.  A large quantity of stolen property, of substantial value, was recovered from the perpetrators residences in Constantia and Syracuse. We credit the officers alertness to the prior occurrence of thefts at Mr. 2nd, quickly  responding, and strategically coordinating their response from different directions, for the apprehension, arrest, and recovery of stolen property.  Their  follow-up investigation using current technology also identified  property that the rertailer in Oswego had not yet discovered was stolen.  The great work of our officers coupled with the eyes and ears of the citizen who called in the prowler complaint was another example  the citizens working with the police to bring a successful conclusion to undesireable conduct in the community.  Keep up the great team work Police and citizens.
