Update on the burglary in Pavilion today: A second person of interest was taken into custody by State Police on Transit Road about 8 p.m. less than two miles from the burglary location.
The man was identified as an individual who had approached two residents on Transit Road looking to use a telephone and asking for directions to Texeco Town.
After residents reported the suspicious behavior. State Police and the Sheriff's Office set up a perimeter around the area and the State Police helicopter was called in to assist in the search.
A trooper who had just joined the search stopped on Transit Road to talk with one of the homeowners and while they were talking, the subject of the search walked toward them and the trooper ordered him onto the ground.
The subject was taken back to the Batavia Barracks for questioning. No word yet confirming whether he was involved with the burglary.
Trooper: "So, what brings you to this area?"
Suspect: "Well, my wife and I, along with our 5 kids, want to get out of the city. So, we figured, what better place to buy a house, than out here in the Town of Bethany, or the Town of Pavilion, or even in the Town of Texaco? But, I've been walkin' for hours and can't seem to find that Texaco Town anywheres." -- "On top of that, everybody I ask just laughs."
