It is my understanding that the Grand Jury started meeting in September. It is also my understanding that the FBI is still investigating.

Seneca County subject of FBI probe

By CRAIG FOX
Finger Lakes Times
cfox@fltimes.com

WATERLOO — Just as the special prosecutor’s in-vestigation into the Seneca County Sheriff’s Department is growing, a former Fayette supervisor has confirmed that the FBI is looking into possible corruption within the county.

Robert Peterman said Monday that he talked to an FBI agent from the Elmira office about an investigation into Seneca County matters.

Peterman was interviewed for an hour by FBI Special Agent Mark Thompson about three weeks ago, but the former supervisor would not reveal the contents of the discussion.

“... I don’t want to say anything to incriminate anybody or interfere with what they’re doing,” Peterman said, adding he doesn’t know who else agents have interviewed.

Peterman has been a vocal critic of county government since he left office in 2003 after serving one term as supervisor.

Mark Falconetti, an FBI spokesman in the Buffalo office, said Monday he would not comment about any investigation.

“It’s always been a policy not to discuss whether we have an investigation going on,” Falconetti said.

Peterman’s confirmation of the FBI probe has come at a time when a special prosecutor, Ontario County District Attorney R. Michael Tantillo, is dealing with considerable public input into his investigation of possible criminal acts by five Seneca County sheriff’s employees.

He would not confirm having knowledge of the FBI probe.

“It would be grossly inappropriate for me to comment on whether any other agency is involved in an investigation,” Tantillo said, adding he’s pursuing his own probe. “I have a job to do.”

His investigation was initiated after a suspicious Feb. 3 fire at the former Seneca Army Depot, which destroyed the sheriff department’s navigational unit, some evidence, a command post vehicle and other equipment.

Tantillo said Monday that a number of people have already been interviewed, but he wouldn’t provide a number, just calling it a “pretty significant amount” and noting that many of them have come forward wanting to talk about what they know.

In fact, the number who’ve come forward is so large that Tantillo said he has delayed taking the case to a Seneca County grand jury until all the interviews are completed.

“Not a week goes by without several more people [calling],” Tantillo said, adding that he had intended to go to the grand jury weeks ago.

Now it could be several more weeks, he said, but “I do think I’m getting closer.”

Former Republican Election Commissioner Larry Peterson confirmed Monday night that he’s one of the people who have talked to state police as part of Tantillo’s probe, but he would not divulge what he told the investigator.

Although he got involved in the case because of the fire, Tantillo has said that the scope of his investigation could widen and lead elsewhere.

Tantillo has confirmed that his investigation is focused partly on what happened to several tires for sheriff’s department vehicles. Seneca County Sheriff Leo Connolly, who is on medical leave after having surgery last week, has also confirmed that tires were stored in the warehouse at the time of the fire.

Before he went on medical leave, Connolly said that he “had no knowledge” of FBI involvement in a local investigation.

Four sheriff’s department employees with access to the building were put on administrative leave shortly after the fire. One of them, former Undersheriff James R. Larson, resigned March 1. Several county-owned items were found in Larson’s home, Seneca Falls Supervisor Peter Same has said.

The other three employees are deputies; one of them, Scott Buck, has since left the department after being disciplined for urinating on a state police patrol car during a disturbance at the Waterloo Holiday Inn. The other two have since returned to work.

Investigators are still working on the whole scenario daily. They use a hall owned by the NYS Police daily and have been going through records and info being given them. It hasnt been swept under the carpet however once this whole thing is over, it will be finalized and closed with no stone unturned.

WTF! It's taken me 50 yrs to just barely get used to THIS civilization, and now they're going to change it?! Will there be a test? I hope it's not one of those open book deals, where all of the pages are blank.

Well, he DID confess to SOME of his perversions. Wonder what they'll find under his rug.

I mean besides the bald spot. The FBI doesn't frack around. They always investigate those
that blow the whistle just as hard as they do those the whistle was blown on.

Just to see the what, where and why's up close and personal so they can fully understand.

With all the crap that's gone for along time, I'm sure they alot to look into before closing their investigation. I wouldn't be surprised if some of it points to certain people who are no longer in the department.

Will all this end once the grand jury ruling comes out? Or will there be numerous posts/topics on the same old thing but just with a different heading??

Whats more damaging to the resident's of Seneca County is the criminal justice system in the county. Potential jurors are probably reading some this stuff and informing a biased opinion based on the biased opinions of others on here. Some of you are quick to speculate and further base your thoughts on opinions and not knowing if those opinions are right, wrong or indifferent. Criminals are starting to use this in an attempt to provide a defense for themselves. Anyone remember the conviction of the dispatcher? Right after the verdict was announced her family was crying corruption and how she shouldn't have been convicted.

Some damage was done in the past but it can be reversed. So let the good cops do there job. By not letting the good ones do their jobs you are allowing the criminals to gain an advantage and when that happens that type of damage can't be reversed.
