Ithaca, Elmira, Ithaca, then jail

A pair of 18-year-old men were arrested Saturday after they allegedly stole a pair of cars in Ithaca and Elmira.

Police say Luke Morrow of Ithaca and Osric Bush of Dryden stole a car from the Green Street Parking Garage before 1:30 p.m. Saturday. As they left the garage, they reportedly hit a parked car, then drove away.

A bulletin was sent out across police agencies, and at 4 p.m., police in Elmira spotted the car, and saw there was nobody inside. About five minutes later, police got another call of a stolen car.

More than 90 minutes later, a sheriff’s deputy in Tompkins County saw a car matching a description of the one reportedly stolen in Elmira. The deputy tried to pull the car over in the 300 block of Floral Avenue in the city, but police say Morrow and Bush wouldn’t stop.

Police put down stop strips. Their car stopped in front of the strips, and police arrested Bush and Morrow.

Morrow and Bush both face a felony charge filed by Ithaca Police. Bush faces three charges from the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office.

Both were sent to the Tompkins County Jail, with court dates on Wednesday.
