A pair of drug crimes in Genesee County has police officers asking for your help.
First, in Batavia:
Police are asking for information as they investigate a burglary that occurred just this morning on Vine Street.
Officers say that around 5am, two men, one white and one black, forced their way into the house at 20 Vine Street. Their faces were wrapped in bandanas. They demanded drugs from the residents and threatened the use of a gun, though none was displayed.
One of the residents became physically involved with the black male intruder, and injured him. At that point, both suspects fled the residence on foot, headed north.
Police believe the house was not selected at random.
Anyone with information is asked to call 345-6350, or anonymously at 345-6370.
And the LeRoy Police Department and LeRoy Crime Stoppers are offering a 1-thousand dollar reward for information that will lead to the arrest of another wanted man.
This suspect allegedly robbed the LeRoy Rite-Aid store on March 5, just before 9pm. Reports say he entered the store wearing a yellow hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and a mask. He implied to the cashier that he had a gun, demanded prescription drugs, and fled the scene with drugs in hand.
The man is described as a 5 foot 7 white male.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 888-479-8477.
