Residents in the area of Route 394 in the Town of Westfield are advised to lock their vehicles and their homes while a search continues tonight in a wooded area for a suspected burglar, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office reported.
The search began after deputies answered a call at 2:10 p.m. Wednesday about a break-in in progress at a hunting camp on Route 394. According to the report, the suspect fled just before officers arrived. An initial search of a large wooded area nearby was unsuccessful.
During the search, a sheriff’s K9 found a coat that contained a Pennsylvania driver’s license. A short time later, the Sheriff’s Office said, searchers discovered a vehicle stuck on a nearby road that was registered to the man whose license was found.
The Sheriff’s Office advised residents, “We do not believe the subject is a threat to the public, but we do believe he could be in search of a vehicle to steal.”
