Police, Public And Cameras Come Together In Burglary Arrest

Thanks to good old fashioned police work, the help of the City’s new surveillance cameras and the continued help from the public, Buffalo Police have arrested a man in connection with a burglary of a South Buffalo Senior Citizens Residence.

Police have arrested 45 year old Mark Delmonte of Hayden Street and charged him with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property and other charges.

Authorities believe that Delmonte burglarized the Seneca Cazenovia Square Senior Citizens residence, located at 2171 Seneca St., Sunday morning, September 20th at approximately 6:45am. Police say that Delmonte took a gas grill and a snow blower.

A District police, led by Lt. Patrick Roberts, Detective Mark Fitzpatrick and Officer Debra Hornberger began interviewing witnesses that provided key information in the investigation.

Police also worked hand-in-hand with the City’s Surveillance Camera Room. Surveillance video showed the suspect’s vehicle passing through the intersection of Abbott Road and Cazenovia St. shortly after the incident occurred with the stolen items in the back of the truck. A camera is located at Abbott and Lorraine.

The stolen items were recovered at a home in the 100 block of Peabody St. by Officers Kevin Kennedy and James Reese.
