Monday Afternoon:

We want to update you on a story we reported earlier regarding a search for a "suspicious person" in the Radisson community in the Town of Lysander.

Onondaga County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. John D'Eredita tells us there were two incidents. On Saturday night there was a burglary at a residence in the Braewood Drive area. Deputies have not made an arrest in that case or said what was taken.

Sunday night, a resident of Radisson called 911 to report a susicious person in the same area. Sheriff's patrols responded and searched the area with patrol cars and the Air One helicopter. They did not locate anyone.
