A 44 year old Rochester man is in Ontario County Jail after leading police on a chase that started in Victor after he was caught by a resident breaking into a home and ended in Fairport.
Sam Sides, Junior is accused of entering a home on Gillis Road through its front door. A resident of the home spotted Sides enter the house before she went into the bathroom to hid and call 9-1-1. A nearby sheriff’s deputy responded to the home and found Sides loading items into his car. Sides fled in his car before he eventually crashed it in front of Fairport High School after hitting two other cars. Sides was taken into custody and sent to jail without bail because of two prior felony convictions.
It was later learned a second suspect, described as a white male wearing blue jeans and a tan coat, may have fled on foot from the scene in Victor. A tip led deputies to the Green Road area fo Farmington, which was searched by K-9’s and a State Police helicopter, but nobody was found.
