LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A Nunda woman was arrested by a coordinated effort by Geneseo and Dansville Police for allegedly violating an order of protection for the second time in three months in the Village of Geneseo on April 9 and then fleeing to Dansville when police were called.
According to Geneseo Police Chief Eric Osganian, Dansville Police located and arrested Lisa Galloway, 33, of Nunda, for Criminal Contempt in the Second Degree after receiving an alert from Geneseo Police that a person who had an order of protection against Galloway reported a minor altercation with her at a residence on Meadow Drive in Geneseo and wanted her removed.
“We reached out to her and there was no contact,” said Chief Osganian. “We had enough information for an arrest. We knew that she would be in Dansville that day, so instead of sending one of our officers we decided to let Dansville locate her and they made the traffic stop.”
Galloway apparently said that she fled the scene because she was afraid. Chief Osganian added that unfortunately this type of fleeing action can cause judges and justices to set bail due to a possible flight risk.
Galloway was remanded to the Livingston County Jail on $1,000 cash or $2,000 bond.
This is the second time Galloway has been arrested for violating the order of protection in the Village of Geneseo.
The order of protection had been issued in Batavia Town Court.
