Burglary in progress in Elba
Two white males have broken into a residence on Ridge Road in Elba and are in the basement. Genesee County Sheriff's deputies are responding along with the canine unit.
Caller reports the suspect vehicle to be a van, light tan or silver in color with tinted windows.
Deputies have found an open back door and the suspects have fled the scene heading toward Route 98.
Looking for two white males -- one with a long, black ponytail and the other with a scraggly beard.
Deputies asking dispatch to advise the Orleans County Sheriff and Batavia police of the descriptions.

UPDATE 1:48 p.m.: The location on Fisher Road in Oakfield.
UPDATE 1:57 p.m.: The van is also at this location.
anything new here?
After the last post there was no more scanner traffic on this. I guess we will have to wait for a Genesee County Sheriff Dept. report
The van on Fisher rd had nothing to do with the burglary!!
