  • A man under arrest for causing a serious accident in Greece Tuesday is also being investigated for other crimes.
    According to Greece Police, Perry Lee Runion, 50, who maintains "multiple addresses throughout the area," was driving a stolen sedan around noon Tuesday when he struck a police car, pushing it out of his way, in the Fetzner Road area. A short time later, police say his reckless driving caused a tow truck to leave the road and crash into a home.
    Investigators came upon the accident as they searched the area for the suspect; they were not chasing the sedan, according to police. The home has been deemed uninhabitable.
    Runion was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he was charged with third-degree criminal possession of stolen property, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree criminal mischief in the second degree, reckless driving and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. The first three charges are felonies while the last two are miisdemeanors.
    Due to Runion’s criminal history, the judge was unable to set bail, according to police. He remains in custody of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and is due to appear in Greece Town Court Friday. 
    Runion is the subject of an ongoing investigation involving various other crimes throughout the area, police said, declining to provide more information at this time.
