Penn Yan Teenager Caught By Police

6:15 PM UPDATE 10/03/12-

The subject of a manhunt in Steuben County is now in custody. State Police say they apprehended Tyler Davis, 19, of Penn Yan on County Route 7 near Avoca.

The search for Davis began Tuesday afternoon following a report of a suspicious person and vehicle. According to investigators, Davis stole a car in Macedon and a handgun in Penn Yan.

Schools in the area were put on lockdown for about two hours.



Law enforcement in Steuben County will resume their search this morning for a 19 year old Penn Yan man suspected of stealing a Jeep after he allegedly helped another person steal a handgun and a shotgun. 

It's believed Tyler Davis stole the car in Macedon following the theft of the two guns in Penn Yan.  The other person involved in the alleged gun thefts was arrested by Penn Yan Village Police and the shotgun recovered. The name of that suspect has not been released.


Davis was last seen running away from a Jeep in Avoca, but it's not known if he had a gun in his possession.  Because he's a suspect in the theft of a firearm, Avoca Central School was placed in a lockdown until 4 p.m. Police dogs and helicopters were called in to aid in the search.

Police say Davis grew up in the Avoca area and he knows the terrain real well
