IDK, but I'll bet the % is about the same. There's only one atheist meetup in Ithaca, and last week 8 attended the monthly meeting.

One thing for sure...the great majority of the criminals are believers. laugh

Two men armed with handguns robbed the Rite Aid pharmacy near East Hill Plaza early on Saturday evening, says the Tompkins County Sheriff's Department. No one was injured in the incident, which occurred at around 6pm.

One man was described as wearing a black jacket with green hood, dark-colored pajama bottoms with white lettering, and a white ski mask covering his face. The other man was wearing a black jacket with green hood, light khaki pants, and a black ski mask covering his face.

Store employees say the pair fled the store towards Agava Restaurant, and then drove west on Mitchell Street in a light-colored SUV. The store is on Pine Tree Road in the Town of Ithaca southeast of the Cornell University campus, on the site formerly occupied by Ide's Bowling. Sheriff's Department investigators ask anyone with information about the robbery to contact them at 607-257-1345.

3 arrested in marijuana sale robbery in Ithaca

A marijuana sale that went awry resulted in three men being arrested on robbery charges Thursday and Friday in Ithaca.

Ithaca police were called about 10:19 p.m. to the 100 block of East Spencer Street regarding a robbery that had just occurred. The robbery victim reported that he had agreed to sell marijuana to a subject. When the drug deal was supposed to occur, three males forced their way into his residence and stole items, police said.

Officers recovered evidence from the scene as well as in the neighborhood, including some of the items that were stolen. Shortly after the incident occurred, the three subjects, all of Ithaca, were located in the area of Cayuga Medical Center by the New York State Police and the Tompkins County Sheriffs Department. Two were identified as Eric M. Benjamin, 28, and John M. Oliver, 19, police said.

About 2:30 p.m. Friday, the third subject, Cruz E. Colon, 24, was located and taken into custody. Benjamin, Oliver, and Colon were each charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary, both felonies. The three were arraigned in Ithaca City Court Friday and taken to the Tompkins County Jail with bail set at $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.

He was smart enough to call the cops after 3 guys robbed him, and the robbers were apprehended. What's dumb about that? If people forced their way into your home, and robbed you, wouldn't you call the cops? Wouldn't you say that you had a right to have them arrested?

Ithaca police seek 2 in armed, home invasion

Police are seeking two men who made off with two safes containing an undisclosed amount of money in an armed, home invasion robbery Wednesday morning in the 300 block of Floral Avenue.

One suspect is described as a black man, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, and the other suspect is a man of unknown race, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, Ithaca Police said.

Police were called at 4:35 a.m. and told by the complainant that two men had just entered his apartment, displayed a handgun, stole items and fled the area.

The complainant said that around 4:30 a.m. the suspects knocked on his door and pointed a handgun at him when he answered. The man told police one of the suspects choked him while the other suspect retrieved two safes.

Man accused of robbing Cornell employee at knifepoint found guilty:

The man who robbed the employee of a café on the Cornell University campus at knifepoint back in November has been convicted.

25-year-old Rishawn Vieweg was found guilty this week in a Tompkins County courtroom of robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.

On November 9th of last year, prosecutors say Vieweg threatened the employee of the Synapsis Café at Cornell’s Weill Hall with a knife, demanding that she turn over the money.

Vieweg fled the scene but was stopped by a civilian long enough for cornell police to catch Vieweg just outside the building.

As a violent felon, Vieweg faces a minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum of 25 years.

Burglars strike Ithaca’s The Piggery, break window and steal cash

Ithaca, N.Y. — Sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning, a burglar or burglars broke into Ithaca’s The Piggery and stole “a significant amount” of cash, according to Piggery office manager Megan Carey.

“It just feels intensely violating to have something like this happen,” Carey said in an interview Sunday afternoon, “especially for a small business like us.”

Ithaca police are investigating the crime, according to Carey. Carey said a break-in was also reported recently at the Bowl-O-Drome that sits about a block away from The Piggery.

The weekend burglary of The Piggery follows two similar crimes at the offices of Ithaca to Go.

That office — nearby on the western side of town — saw two safes stolen from it on July 7. Then, on July 10, someone again broke into Ithaca to Go, stayed for a few hours and left with ice cream sandwiches.
