Groton man found with loaded gun after fleeing from police


Robert S. Bailey, 41, crashed his vehicle after attempting to flee from state police.

He was then found in possession of a loaded handgun.

Just after 10 am last Saturday (October 16), a trooper saw Bailey commit several traffic violations on Williams Street in the village of Groton.

A stop was initiated. But instead of pulling over, Bailey took off.

He subsequently struck another vehicle before colliding with a telephone pole. Nobody was injured in either wreck.

Bailey was later arraigned before a judge, then remanded to the Tompkins County Jail without bail.

The investigation continues.
