DANSVILLE, N.Y. (WROC) — A Rochester man was arrested following a stolen vehicle police chase through Livingston County, law enforcement officials announced Thursday.
According to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, 31-year-old Romualdo Sing-Lazaro is facing multiple charges, including third degree felony criminal posession of stolen property, in addition to numerous violations of vehicle and traffic laws.
Police say it was shortly before 7 a.m. Monday when the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office Communication Bureau was advised of a stolen vehicle pursuit on State Route 36 near the border of Steuben and Livingston Counties.
Officials say deputies deployed stop sticks in the Town of Groveland to disable the suspect vehicle. After that, Sing-Lazaro was taken into custody without incident, authorities said.

Authorities say he was late released on his recognizance to return to court at a later date.
