ALBION – The Albion Police Department had two separate incidents today with tactical operations in the village, involving searches.

The first was in response to the possible sighting of the wanted fugitives from the state of Tennessee who are wanted for attempted murder and aggravated kidnapping.

It was determined that the wanted individuals from Tennessee were not in the area or involved, Police Chief Roland Nenni said.

However, the search resulted in a fugitive from South Carolina wanted for an arrest warrant for methamphetamine charges being arrested and a second suspect arrested for a larceny from the Albion Walmart.

The Albion Police Department, Orleans County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, and New York State Park Police were involved in this incident with the search primarily near routes 31 and 98 and Dollinger’s Motel.

Rite Aid was a temporary shelter in place and was closed to the public for a few minutes while police conducted the tactical operation, Nenni said.

The second tactical operation was a search for an individual wanted by the Sheriff’s Office on grand larceny charges. That individual was witnessed in the area of North Street in the village of Albion and he possibly entered a wooded area to avoid apprehension, Nenni said.

A search was conducted involving the Albion Police, Orleans County Sheriff’s Office and New York State Police with negative results.

“The search for the individual wanted by the Sheriff’s Office involves a non-violent offense and there is no concern for public safety regarding this individual,” Nenni said.
