A man from Dansville is facing child pornography charges. Sheriff Thomas Doughtery says 21-year-old Kyle Webster was arrested after a teacher at the Dansville central School reported some inappropriate after-hours web searches on her school computer last October. An investigation led deputies to Webster, who was a school cleaner on the 3 to 11 shift. The sheriff says while there was no pornography on the school computer, they did find some on Webster’s cell phones, which led to two counts of felony child pornography possession filed last week. He was arraigned in Dansville Town court and taken to Livingston County Jail on $2,000 bond. School officials say they handled the matter quickly and that Webster was fired shortly after the discovery and that no students were affected or involved. They also say Webster had taken part in a workforce development program last summer before he was hired and that there were no red flags or issues during his three weeks on the job last fall.
Heroin possession charges have been filed against a man from Hemlock. Deputies say they found the drugs and a hypodermic needle after they pulled over 31-year-old Corbin Swift on Main Street in the Village of Livonia for a traffic violation. He was arrested and arraigned on $1,500 bond in Livonia Town Court.
Two men have been arrested after a traffic stop on 390. Sheriff Thomas Dougherty says 45-year-old Luis Castro of Rochester was driving on a suspended license and without insurance—while a passenger, identified as Gendry Davilla-Marerro of Livonia was found to have several pills that he didn’t have a prescription for. Castro was cited for the driving violations while Davilla-Marrero was arraigned and taken to the Livingston County jail.

Officials in Rochester say they’re going to get to the bottom of how a 14-year-old autistic teen wound up in the Genesee River. Reports say Treyvan Rowe wandered away Thursday after being dropped off by the bus at James P.B. Duffy School 12.

Rochester police say they’re still working on piecing together a timeline of the day
