  • Staff Report 

A routine traffic stop by Penn Yan Police resulted in the arrest of 21-year-old Cameron L. Manley of Keuka Park for possessing unauthorized police equipment and other traffic-related offenses.

The incident began when Manley failed to stop for a traffic violation on Liberty Street, despite the officer activating emergency lights and siren. Manley continued driving northbound on Liberty Street for an extended distance before eventually stopping on North Ave.

Officers then discovered three radios capable of transmitting on Yates County law enforcement and fire frequencies. Additionally, unauthorized emergency lights were found in Manley’s vehicle. As a result of these discoveries, Manley was charged with possessing unauthorized police receivers, a misdemeanor offense. He also faced charges for failure to comply with a lawful order, having unauthorized lights, and window tint violations.

Manley was issued appearance tickets and is scheduled to appear in Penn Yan Village Court at a later date. The arrest underscores the importance of adhering to traffic laws and regulations, as well as the illegality of possessing unauthorized equipment that could interfere with law enforcement and emergency services communications. This case also highlights the vigilance of the Penn Yan Police in enforcing traffic laws and ensuring public safety.
