Erie County Legislator Edward Rath III and Sheriff Timothy Howard will host a Community Watch Meeting to address the recent home burglaries in the Town of Clarence and residents are welcome to attend and obtain advice from the Sheriff’s Office.   

The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21 at St Paul’s Episcopal Church, 4275 Harris Hill Road, Clarence.  

“After hearing several reports of residents being victimized, the Sheriff and I decided to come together and host a meeting to fight back as a community. These break-ins are extremely concerning, and everyone should be aware that they are happening. We are seeing home burglaries in all parts of Erie County. This meeting will not only serve as a good reminder on how they can protect yourself, but allow us all to share ideas, advice and solutions,” said Legislator Rath. “We are stronger when we work together to stop these crimes.” 

“My office and the New York State Police are investigating several incidents.  Recently, my Deputies arrested an individual for three burglaries and are on alert throughout Erie County for car and home break-ins, and home and vehicle owners can prevent thieves by with simple security measures and reporting any suspicious activity to law enforcement,” said Sheriff Howard.
