Two Seneca Falls residents were taken into custody on more than 25 charges after the Cayuga Nation Police Department executed a search warrant.
According to a news release from the Cayuga Nation, their police officers executed a search warrant at 2954 E. Bayard Street in Seneca Falls at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Friday.
An illegal shotgun and other weapons were recovered during the search. Cayuga Nation PD also shuttered an illegal business that was operating on the property, according to Cayuga Nation reps.
That same news release indicated that the Seneca Falls Police Department was on-scene assisting with traffic.
About three hours later, the Seneca Falls Police Department announced the arrest of two individuals, one of which had an address that was the site of the earlier search by CNPD.
Marcus Redeye, 25, of 2954 E. Bayard Street, Seneca Falls, and Buck Redeye, 22, of Cosad Road, Seneca Falls were arrested after warrants were issued out of Seneca Falls Town Court about 15 minutes after the search warrant was executed.
“The warrants stem from several investigations into criminal activity that took place in August of 2022 in the Town of Seneca Falls on State Route 89, Lower Lake Road and East Bayard Street Extension,” SFPD said in a news release.
They say the Redeye’s working alone, and with others, sprayed several victims with bear spray, threatened victims with blunt weapons, and compound bows with knocked arrows, and caused several thousand dollars worth of damage to a car.
Marcus Redeye, 25, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, two counts of assault, three total counts of menacing, two counts of unlawful possession of a noxious material, and conspiracy.
Buck Redeye, 22, was charged with criminal mischief, four total counts of menacing, reckless endangerment, five counts of assault, three counts of unlawful possession of a noxious material, and two counts of conspiracy.
Both were arraigned in Seneca County Centralized Arraignment Court and released as required by New York State law, according to the SFPD.
The ordeal didn’t end there, though.
SFPD said that immediately upon release from Centralized Arraignment Court, Buck Redeye went to a residence on East Bayard Street and threw a metal crowbar at a person. He was then subsequently charged with additional counts of assault, menacing, and reckless endangerment.
Redeye was transported back to the Seneca County Correctional Facility to await arraignment where he was released after, per state law.
