On Sunday, June 9, 2019, at approximately 11:00 A.M., State Police in North Syracuse responded to a reported child left alone inside a vehicle at Wegmans on Brewerton Road in the town of Cicero.
An investigation has revealed, a store shopper contacted 911 after hearing a baby crying from inside a locked vehicle with the windows slightly cracked and the engine off. A bystander retrieved a golf club from his vehicle and was able to wedge the club into the car window and unlock the door. EMS personnel conducted an assessment of the 6-month-old infant and determined the baby to be in good health. A review of the store’s security cameras determined that the infant was left unattended inside the locked vehicle for approximately 20 minutes.
Travis C. LePage (39) and Renee R. LePage (35) from Cleveland, NY were both arrested for Endangering the Welfare of a Child, a class “A” misdemeanor and were issued an appearance ticket returnable to the town of Cicero Town Court for Tuesday, June 18 at 5 P.M.
State Police was assisted at the scene by Navac Ambulance and Cicero Fire Department. Onondaga County Child Protective Services was also notified of the incident.
