LEE, N.Y. – A father and son from the town of Lee were both arrested earlier this week for unrelated reasons.
According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, a snowmobiler failed to stop for deputies on Rome-Taberg Road in Rome on Jan. 11 around 7: 45 p.m., and fled from them through a farm field.
Following an investigation, the sheriff’s office identified the snowmobiler as 50-year-old Cory Tennant.
Maciol says after Tennant fled from deputies on Rome-Taberg Road, he went through the woods and entered a housing development, driving around several houses before going through a yard and heading north on Gore Road.
Deputies found the snowmobile at a home on Gore Road behind several trucks parked in the driveway.
When authorities determined the snowmobiler was Tennant, they also found active warrants for his son, 26-year-old Cory L. Tennant.
Both Tennants turned themselves in to police.
The father was issued five tickets for an unregistered snowmobile, no insurance for the snowmobile, operating a snowmobile on a highway, an inadequate taillight and failure to comply with a police officer.
The son was turned over to the sheriff’s office for the active warrant, and was remanded to the Oneida County jail.
