The man accused of burglarizing a Batavia church and then trying to escape from the county jail has now been indicted on felony charges.

Just three days after his arrest, authorities say Cabrera tried to escape from the Genesee County jail.
He was found hiding in the jail basement.
He’s facing charges for that too.
You should know you’ve had too much to drink when people think you’re dead.
A motorist reported seeing the body of man lying under a bridge near Routes 19 and 490 yesterday morning.

Turns out, the man was drunk…very drunk…according to Sheriff Gary Maha:
“It appears that he had a domestic with his sister, who was en route to Cleveland, and she made him get out of the car. He’s from Rochester, he had a few small injuries, probably from falling down. He had a cup of alcohol sitting on a guardrail he’d been consuming,”
The unidentified man, said to be in his mid 30’s, was taken to Strong Hospital.
