On the Beat: Batavia man booked on felony weapons charges

posted by Philip Anselmo in crime, police, Sheriff's Office.

Derek G. Thomas, 32, of 400 E. Main St., Batavia, was charged with a felony count of first-degree criminal contempt and a felony count of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Thomas is accused of striking a female acquaintance with his hands and hitting her in the head with a beer bottle. The victim had previously been granted an order of protection against Thomas. He was sent to Genesee County Jail without bail pending a court appearance later this morning.

Ronda M. Kern, 27, of Basom, was charged with felony driving while intoxicated Thursday, Genesee County sheriff's deputies said. Kern was located at the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Sandhill Road in Alabama. She was also ticketed with consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle and moving from the lane unsafely.

Just be careful Gary, you can go about this quietly. If you read the website it tells you about what not to say or do against these criminals. I totally agree with you though, and being right around the corner scares me, cause i have a beautiful little girl who cant even play outside when the weathers nice anymore because of Batavia's Finest lurking about. Got some time and I will fill you in on what I've experienced in the 15 years I've lived in my home.

Gary, I don't believe that that is the same person. I know Derek (our daughters are friends) and he was originally from Orleans County and I don't think he ever lived in Broome County. Same age but different middle initial.

The four hundred towers has to accept a small number of low income usually persons with disabilities. Its not just for seniors.
