HILTON, N.Y. (WROC) — Officials from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office say there is no threat to students after an active burglary investigation led deputies to a Hilton school bus Monday morning.
Authorities said Monday that deputies were responding to multiple larceny and burglary calls in the area of Collamer Road and Summertime Trail in Hilton. According to the MCSO, five to six young men were seen running through backyards in the neighborhood.
Investigators say deputies arriving at the scene around 4:00 a.m. found multiple sets of footprints leading to a number of vehicles in the community. They also found a parked vehicle that had been reported stolen from the Town of Henrietta.
Deputies searching the area saw two young men, who investigators say fled on foot. They were detained after a K-9 was brought in to track them. Three more men were arrested in the area a short time later.
Police say one of the suspects was bitten by the K-9 and taken to Unity Hospital for treatment.
Monday evening, police identified the suspects as Tinos McBride, 19; Trevor Gulley, 18; Trevon Burkett, 20, a 15-year-old juvenile; and a 17-year-old juvenile; all from the City of Rochester. They have been charged with multiple counts of Burglary, Grand Larceny, and Petit Larceny.
During the search, investigators say they received a 911 call suggesting one of the suspects boarded a Hilton Central School District bus. Police say, “out of an abundance of caution,” the sheriff’s office worked with Hilton district officials to ensure no students got off the buses. Authorities later determined there was no suspect onboard any of the Hilton school buses.
Officials say they determined there was no threat to the students, and they proceeded with their school day as usual.
Investigators ultimately determined three long guns and a number of valuables were stolen from vehicles in the Fallwood Terrace area overnight. Deputies have since recovered two of the guns.
