Burglary Arrests

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports Investigators arrested two Rochester men following a burglary investigation that occurred at a business located at Waterloo Premium Outlets. During the early morning hours of October 27, 2020, Sheriff’s Deputies and Investigators responded to the store for the reported alarm coming from the business. Upon the Deputies’ arrival, it was determined the store was broken into and a large quantity of merchandise, later determined to be valued in excess of $27,000, was stolen from the business. The two male suspects had fled the scene in a red sport utility vehicle just prior to law enforcement’s arrival. A vehicle matching the description was located on the New York State Thruway by State Police. When State Police attempted to initiate a traffic stop the vehicle fled and a pursuit ensued. During the course of the pursuit it was also determined that the suspect vehicle was reported stolen out of Rochester earlier in the evening. The pursuit ended on Route 590 in Irondequoit when the suspect vehicle crashed. The occupants were identified as Carlos Lozada-Ferrer, age 18, and Reginald Hampton, age 26, both of Rochester, NY. The two were found to be in possession of the merchandise that was reported stolen from the burglary. Both were taken to a nearby hospital for injuries sustained in the accident. Lozada-Ferrer and Hampton were charged by the State Police with offenses related to the stolen vehicle and the pursuit. They were subsequently turned over to Seneca County Sheriff’s Investigators and each charged with Burglary in the Third Degree, a Class D Felony, Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, a Class D Felony, Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree, a Class D Felony, and Conspiracy in the Fifth Degree, a Class A Misdemeanor. Reginald Hampton is currently being held in the Monroe County Jail as he also had a warrant for parole absconding. Lozada-Ferrer was released on appearance tickets, due to the crimes not meeting bail requirements under the new bail reform laws that took effect at the beginning of the year. The two are scheduled to appear at the Junius Town Court on a later date.
