WARSAW, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Wyoming County couple is facing numerous charges a bizarre chain of events involving three 911 complaints, beginning with allegedly being caught by a homeowner breaking into a garage.
State Police were called to a home in Silver Springs on March 26 after a woman called 911 to report a break-in. Troopers responded but the man and woman had fled the scene.
A short time later, a call came in to dispatchers about a man and woman causing a disturbance at the McDonald’s in Warsaw, and the vehicle description matched the one from the burglary.
But before troopers could arrive, another call came in to 911 from the Save A Lot store, which is a short distance from McDonald’s, where employees said a man had displayed what appeared to be a handgun. And though no one had been threatened, employees said the man had pulled the weapon from his waistband while walking through the store.
State Police, Wyoming County Sheriff’s deputies and Warsaw Police all responded, where the suspect vehicle was found. The driver, 18-year-old Amber Reinisch of Castile, was taken into custody. Reinisch is no stranger to police. Last year, she was twice arrested for unauthorized use of a vehicle, and in one of those incidents allegedly crashed the car she had taken without permission.
Officers rushed into the store and quickly took her alleged accomplice, 21-year-old Bradley Jordan of East Bethany, into custody. Troopers say Jordan had tried to ditch the weapon he had in a waste basket in the bathroom before he was arrested, but it was found and secured.
Detectives determined Reinisch and Jordan were the pair responsible for stealing items from Wal-Mart and Olympia Sports in North Warsaw in addition to breaking into the garage in Silver Springs. And in fact, a CO2 air gun stolen from Wal-Mart was the same weapon police say Jordan tried to hide in the waste basket in Save A Lot.
Both are now facing charges of third degree burglary, petit larceny and fifth degree criminal possession of stolen property. They were taken to the Wyoming County Jail on $5,000 bail, each.
