Police in Waterloo say two men were taken into custody after an incident on East Elisha Street in the village on February 20.

According to a press release, several police agencies responded to 11 East Elisha Street to assist child protective services in locating two missing children. While at the residence, police identified Shawn Standbrook, of Waterloo, who was known to have a felony arrest warrant in Seneca Falls.

He was taken into custody and turned over to SFPD, police said.


The Waterloo Police Department then arrested Earl Heath, of Seneca Falls for obstruction and criminal contempt. Those charges stem from Heath violating an active court order with the juvenile being a protected party, and concealing the whereabouts of the child while police were there.

Heath was transported to the Seneca County Correctional Facility and arraigned before being released.

The Waterloo Police Department continued working with the sheriff’s office and Seneca Falls Police Department on-scene until the missing juvenile was located and turned over to Child Protective Services later that night.
