Includes reports received from Yates County Sheriff’s Department*, Penn Yan Police Department, and New York State Police. It should be noted that these reports merely indicate that someone has been charged with an offense, and the use of the term “arrest” does not always mean someone was put in jail. These reports do not indicate guilt.
* Due to a technical difficulty, none of the reports from The Yates County Sheriff’s Office were available this week. Once resolved, those reports will also be published in an upcoming edition of The Chronicle-Express.
