Teacher accused of damaging dance studio’s property


EVANS, N.Y. (WIVB) – A music teacher was caught on surveillance video in June damaging equipment left by a dance studio that had rented the auditorium of Lake Shore High School, according to Evans Police.

Dance Connection of Derby rented the auditorium between June 18-20. After setting up her equipment on June 18 and holding a dress rehearsal, the dance studio owner left. When she returned on Friday for the recital, she found three racks of costumes thrown around, six broken props, and a vinyl banner that had been ripped down.

The 46-year-old Derby man is charged with third degree criminal tampering and criminal mischief.
