Oneida County Sheriff Robert M. Maciol tells WIBX:

“We won’t make an arrest or issue a warning on just an anonymous tip. The anonymous tip starts the process on our end - we will then investigate. We will not be arresting anyone ever based on an anonymous tip.”

Everyone must comply with social distancing to stop the spread. There is no unnecessary travel in Oneida County, and we need to continue with social distancing. If you must go out, wear a mask.

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente reminds residents that there is no unnecessary travel in Oneida County.
