Lamarr Renee Berry, 49, who was wanted on failing to register as a sex offender, is facing several traffic charges related to a pursuit, including reckless driving and reckless endangerment, Ontario County sheriff's deputies said Thursday.
A homeless Geneva woman wanted on three counts of failing to register as a sex offender led deputies and Geneva police officers on a pursuit through the city and town of Geneva and into Yates County before she was apprehended Thursday, according to Ontario County sheriff’s deputies.
Lamarr Renee Berry, 49, is facing several traffic charges related to the pursuit, including reckless driving and reckless endangerment, deputies said. Berry was taken to Ontario County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail.
According to deputies, Berry ran stop signs and stop lights and drove in both lanes of traffic while trying to elude officers in the city. Deputies estimated speeds at between 45 and 60 mph.
At one point she slowed so that a man could jump from the vehicle, deputies said, before continuing on Route 14 into the next county.
Yates County sheriff’s deputies placed “stop sticks” on Route 14 in the town of Torrey in an attempt to stop her, although she pulled her vehicle over before hitting them, deputies said.
Berry is scheduled to appear in Ontario County Court at a later date.
