Law and Order: Man accused of calling ambulance to test response time

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, crime.

Kevin G. Viehdeffer, 51, of 334 W. Main St., Batavia, is charged with falsely reporting an incident, 3rd. Viehdeffer is accused of calling the Emergency Dispatch Center and requesting an ambulance for himself when he, in fact, did not need medical attention. Investigators claim Viehdeffer made the call merely to test the response time of personnel.

Tori Ann Jewell, 34, Thomas Avenue, Batavia, is charged with petit larceny. Jewell is accused of stealing $16.19 worth of merchandise from Kmart.

Michael Law Kennedy, 26, of Prospect Street, Batavia, is charged with aggravated harassment, 2nd. Kennedy is accused of sending several text messages threatening physical harm to the alleged victim and his family. Kennedy was arraigned in Stafford Town Court and ordered to stay away from the alleged victim.

That's funny Matt. What's funnier is someone is arrested for stealing merchandise at K-mart. Really? What is worth stealing and getting arrested for? Especially at $16.19? Heck, get a job at McDonalds and buy it next time! Another funny issue is someone who was arrested and has Law as part of their name. Come on, what were you thinking? It didn't help him.

Matt I agree, I'd like to know what the response time was. I just punched the address into google maps, and it's exactly one mile from the Mercy EMS base. I'm sure they were on location within 2-3 minutes.

It would be more interesting to see the results of their response times outside of the city, to say, Pavillion or Darien's districts.
