According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol on 1-11-22 at about 7:43 pm the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office Recreation Unit attempted to stop a snowmobile for operating on Rome Taberg Rd in the City of Rome.

Once the snowmobile operator saw that the Patrol Unit was trying to stop him, he turned off the road and fled through a farm field. Sheriff’s Deputies did not pursue and began an investigation of the incident.

The investigation revealed that the suspect snowmobile went through a wooded area, entered into a housing development, drove around several houses, traveled through another patch of woods, through another resident’s yard on Gore Rd, and then proceeded northbound on Gore Rd.

The snowmobile was located at a residence on Gore Rd behind several trucks parked in the driveway. The investigation revealed the name Cory Tennant as the operator of the snowmobile that fled. Deputies researched the name and found that a Cory Tennant had an active misdemeanor warrant with the Sheriff’s Office out of the Town of Annsville Court. Further investigation revealed that Cory L. Tennant, 50 of Lee NY was the operator of the snowmobile. The active warrant was for Cory L. Tennant, 26 of Lee NY.

Sheriff’s Deputies were able to get both Tennant’s to turn themselves in at the Law Enforcement Building today. The senior Tennant was issued 5 tickets returnable to the City of Rome Court for Unregistered Snowmobile, Uninsured Snowmobile, Operating Snowmobile on Highway, inadequate taillight, and failing to comply with a Police Officer. He was released on those tickets.

The Junior Tennant was turned over to the Sheriff’s Office Warrants Unit and logged in the Oneida County Jail and is currently awaiting arraignment.
