Two Rochester natives were charged Wednesday evening after allegedly stealing beer from the Mobil gas station on Jefferson Road in Henrietta. Deputies of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office identified the driver as Elbert Davis, 54, formerly of Rochester and his passenger Alana Greenough, 30, of Rochester.
The Mobil employee provided 911 with a description of the vehicle and the suspects. Police discovered the vehicle had been reported stolen out of Rochester on July 11.
Police say the vehicle is a white 2015 Honda Civic.
Brighton officers soon spotted the vehicle. Deputies of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office arrived to assist and attempted to stop the vehicle. The vehicle fled and tried to hide in a backyard on West Henrietta Road. As officers approached, the vehicle drove at them forcing several officers to jump out of the way to avoid being struck before it fled the area.
Police spotted the vehicle a short time later and MCSO deputies requested the assistance of the State Police. Troopers pursued the vehicle through several east-side towns before it ended on Route 31F near St. John Fisher College. Officers from the NYSP, Brighton, MCSO, and East Rochester PD were immediately on-hand to provide assistance.
