Troopers: Pair wanted after Waterloo Outlet burglary lead authorities on pursuit into Rochester

A pursuit that started in Junius near the Waterloo Premium Outlet Mall ended with two people being taken into custody near Empire Boulevard on I-590.

New York State Police say they tried to stop a stolen vehicle believed to be involved in a burglary at the Waterloo Premium Outlets on the Thruway in Junius.

The vehicle kept going, getting off the Thruway at the Victor exit – traveling up I-490, before heading north on I-590.

Eventually the operator of the vehicle lost control and it crashed near the Empire Boulevard exit.

The driver, who tried to flee after the crash, was identified as Reginald Hampton, 26, and charged with criminal possession of stolen property and unlawfully fleeing.

Troopers said Hampton was also a parole absconder. The passenger was identified as Carlos Lozada-Ferrer, 18, who was charged with criminal possession of stolen property.

He was turned over to the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office. Additional charges are possible there, according to authorities.
