A recent string of home burglaries continues to worry residents in the town of Dewitt. Local police are trying to stop this unusual crime spree.
The three break-ins in the Town of DeWitt this week alone are indicative of a trend that has been increasing since early this summer. Dewitt Police Lieutenant John Anton says the houses have been broken into at times of the day people are not typically home. He says it is possible one group could be behind the burglaries… and many of them seem to follow a pattern.
John Balloni confirmed Monday what many already suspected…that he’s running for Onondaga County Sheriff. He’s been raising money for months, and retiring Sheriff Kevin Walsh has publicly supported Balloni as his successor. He told a crowd of about 50 supporters yesterday that in an age of tight budgets and sparse manpower, he wants more partnerships with local police agencies to boost community policing. But he stopped short of a full endorsement of consolidation.
