Attica PD asks public assistance in solving vandalism at car dealership

posted by Howard B. Owens in Attica, crime.

Attica's normally outside of our coverage area, but since there's a good chance a Genesee County resident could help solve this crime, here's a press release from the Attica PD:

Sometime between 6:00pm, November 16th and 9:00am today unknown individuals caused damage with rocks to 28 vehicles at the Upstate Cheverlet Dealership on Main Street in Attica.  Damage is estimated over $50,000.  The Attica Police Department is reviewing video tape from the dealership and other area businesses and are in the process of enhancing these videos to identify the perpetrators.

There is no motive at this time however Chief Palillo would like the individuals to know that if this was a prank that got out of control now would be the time to come forward before the investigation gets to far.

As before if anyone has any information about this incident they are asked to contact the Attica Police Department at 585-721-5276, or the Wyoming County Sheriff's Department at 585-786-2255.  This information can be kept confidential.

NOTE: This is an updated press release from the Attica PD replacing the original one.

UPDATE: In response to a comment by a reader wondering about cameras at the dealership, Thomas Cockman, parts and service director for Upstate, left this comment on Facebook: "We have several cameras and are reviewing tape right now, we will catch the people responsible, they would do themselves a huge favor by just turning themselves in. If the police have to hunt them down, it will make it that much worse."
