Gloversville Police investigating attempted abduction of a child

Gloversville Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a driver in what they’re calling an attempted abduction.

“The kids were playing on the bars.”

Brandie Johnson says her 8-year-old daughter told her she’d been playing with friends near the driveway of her Gloversville home on the corner of Summer Street and North Clark Avenue when a vehicle rolled up.

“Apparently a black SUV or van pulled up alongside them.”

An 11-year-old girl who was playing with her daughter and another child said the driver asked for directions to the Gloversville Middle school.

“The younger children did not have contact with the man verbally. The older child did and [she] gave him directions. He said he forgot everything she had said, so he asked that she get in the car with him and show him where the middle school was.”

The girl told the driver no.

“It was said that he told her he had a gun and that he would shoot her if she didn’t get in.”

Brandie says her daughter did not hear the exchange between the driver and her friend.

The alleged incident happened Monday around 6 p.m., but Brandie says she heard about it a day later after it came to light. That’s when the 11-year-old shared the story with a counselor at the middle school.

Gloversville Middle School says the resource officer then took a report.

The driver was described as being a white male, wearing glasses, with a blue plaid shirt on, in his 40’s or 50’s, with a gray beard.

Police won’t confirm the allegations of any threat with a weapon.

Brandie says she’s glad the police are taking the incident seriously even if the investigation finds the story to be unfounded.

She says it’s important to talk to your kids about stranger danger.

The Gloversville Police are asking for the public’s help. If you have seen this subject or his vehicle, you’re asked to give police a call.

Former Cuomo aide sentenced to 6 years for corruption

Joseph Percoco, the ex-aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was sentenced to six years in prison for corruption on Thursday.

In May, Percoco was found guilty of two counts of conspiracy and one count of solicitation of bribes related to the Buffalo Billion Project.

Prosecutors say he sold his influence in government to help businesses get an advantage.

Gov. Cuomo issued this statement:

“I was an Assistant District Attorney and Attorney General, and the rule of law is paramount. Joe Percoco is paying the price for violating the public trust. And it should serve as a warning to anyone who fails to uphold his or her oath as a public servant. On a personal level, the human tragedy for Joe’s young children and family is a very sad consequence.”

Percoco heads home from federal court a free man until he has to report around December 28.

 

Shelter volunteer taking naps with kitties goes viral

A volunteer for a pet sanctuary in Wisconsin is going viral.

In a Facebook post, the Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary says Terry came in one day to brush the cats and now has become a daily ritual for him.

“He brushes all of the cats and can tell you about all of their likes and dislikes. He also accidentally falls asleep most days.”

The sanctuary is a rescue for kitties with special needs that are at risk for euthanasia elsewhere.

After news that he’s going viral, the sanctuary says that he is shocked by all the publicity.

“Now if all of those people would just donate $5 to help the kitties, that would make such a big difference!”

He also wants people to pray for him to win the lottery so he can donate it to his cat friends.

Deadline to take down, change I Love NY signs approaching

The countdown continues for the I Love NY signs seen across the state.

The Federal Highway Administration and the New York Department of Transportation have said for months they are in discussions about what to do before a September 30th deadline.

Federal officials have said for months these signs are too distracting and need to come down or be changed. So, how much work would that take? Has the state already run out of time?

“It’s amazing, you don’t realize how much work and effort goes into a sign until you actually come here and do it,” Foreman Robert Sammons said.

It’s a two man show in the Town of Colonie sign shop.

Sammons says it’s more complicated than you think.

“For an average sign, it’s about 10 or 15 minutes. For the more intricate ones, it takes almost an hour.”

First, they print the lettering from a computer program then start to layer the sign materials on an aluminum blank.

“Once we put the black on it will show up just as bright at night as it would during the day.”

There are several state and federal guidelines to be followed when creating the signs and when putting them up on the roads.

“There’s just a whole bunch of rules that you really have to think about before you go and slap a sign up and say yeah this is a good spot you just can’t do that.”

That’s because if there’s an accident involving the signs, it comes back on these guys.

“Was that sign in the right place? Was it visible?”

Even though Colonie doesn’t make or put up the controversial I Love NY signs, Sammons has an idea of how much work would go into replacing or taking down hundreds of them.

“It sounds like a big job. I’m not sure exactly the cost involved but I would think that would be a big job to do.”

Sammons doesn’t think if he were hypothetically tasked with the project to be able to take them all down in time to meet the deadline. 

“There’s no way we could do that.”

More than 500 signs across New York need to come down in just 10 days or the state could lose $14 million in fines to the feds.
