$83,000 discovered in safe seized following burglary

Buffalo police on Saturday found $83,000 in a safe taken into evidence last week after a burglary on the city’s East Side.
Police were called to a home on French Street, between Fillmore Avenue and Kehr Street, about 11 p. m. June 12 for the report of a burglary in progress. Michael L. Easley, 27, of Weaver Street, and Michael T. Brown, 20, of Broadway, were both arrested by police after Brown was seen dropping the safe, police said.
Easley had run from officers after he was found to be wearing a gun holster. He was later caught, and a .38-caliber revolver was found nearby, according to authorities.
Brown, who had a screwdriver and knife in his pocket, was charged with possession of burglar’s tools.
Police opened the safe after a K-9 unit detected a positive drug scent, and a search warrant was obtained through Buffalo City Court.
