Might be Linda Bell's Cat. She lives on Preston...

It looks like the cat I posted as hanging around our house In Cortland!

Poor baby. Hope she/he is ok

I’ve seen this cat hanging around Kory’s place for years. Maybe Kevin and Debbie would know whose cat is it?

check 16 South Fulton St you might find them

On Monday, August 14, 2018, at approximately 12:26am, an officer from the Homer Police Department conducted a vehicle and traffic stop on Cayuga St., after the officer observed that the vehicle had a lighting defect.

As the officer was approaching the vehicle on foot, the vehicle’s passengers exited it, and the operator fled in the vehicle in an easterly direction on Cayuga St.. An officer from the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office intercepted the vehicle on Cayuga St. and attempted to stop it, but the operator refused to comply. Officers lost sight of the vehicle once it turned onto South Main St., and were unable to locate it.

Officers were able to determine the identity of the 28 year old male operator from Homer. The operator was located at his residence at approximately 10:55am and was taken into custody without an incident. He was charged with Unlawful Fleeing from a Police Officer, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a MV 3rd degree, Reckless Driving, Inadequate Plate Lamps, Failing to Comply with Lawful Order, and Improper / No Signal. He was arraigned before the Town of Homer Court, and remanded to the Cortland County Jail on $1,000.00 cash or $2,000.00 bond.

Officers located the unoccupied vehicle behind a business off from Hannum Ave.. It was towed from the business to the sheriff’s impound lot, and later released to the registered owner.
