A Monroe County sheriff's deputy was injured during a chase with a stolen car and a search for the suspects. It all started with a report of car break-ins at a Henrietta apartment complex.
Three of the four suspect was arraigned in Henrietta Town Court Thursday morning.
The call for car break-ins at Erie Station Village Apartments came in around 11 p.m. Wednesday and a short time later, another at Lehigh Park Apartments just a few miles away.
When sheriff’s deputies arrived at Lehigh Park Apartments the suspects fled the scene in two cars. A stolen car driven by Candice Smith, 20, of Rochester, hit the deputy's car head-on while trying to leave the scene. Smith then tried to run from the area but was taken into custody following a K9 search.
The deputy suffered injuries to his face and was treated at a local hospital. He has since been released. A 15-year-old passenger in the stolen car was not hurt.
Police say 17-year-old Anthony Simmons was driving the second vehicle that tried to flee the scene. His 25-year-old passenger, Trey Riggins, got out of the SUV and started running. After a foot chase, both Simmons and Riggens were taken into custody.
Candice Smith is facing charges of second-degree assault, criminal possession of stolen property and reckless endangerment.
Anthony Simmons was charged with 18 different traffic infractions including reckless driving and driving after drinking alcohol.
Trey Riggins was charged with criminal possession of stolen property after police say he took a wallet out of a vehicle at Lehigh Park Apartments. Riggins is also accused of violating the terms of his electronic ankle monitoring device and is a convicted sex offender.
All three pleaded not guilty in court on Thursday. The fourth suspect, a juvenile, is not facing charges.
Following the incident, sheriff's deputies are reminding everyone to remove valuables from their cars and to keep them locked.
