This morning's police blotter:

26-year-old Rosemary Waters of Roosevelt Drive in Batavia: she was arrested for Petit Larceny and pretending to be someone else.
Waters was confronted by K-mart store security and when Genesee County Sheriff's Deputies showed up, she allegedly fled on foot. The chase was brief. Waters allegedly gave a false name at first because she had been banned from K-mart after a previous shoplifting incident.
