Scuba team removes stolen SUV submerged in Erie Canal

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – On Saturday at 1:22 p.m., the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office was called about a possible SUV underwater in the Erie Canal, just east of Clover Street.

Sheriff’s deputies, along with the Pittsford Fire Department, found the SUV, which looks like it had been in the water for a long time.

The sheriff’s office scuba unit removed the SUV, which was found to be stolen from Rochester in July 2023.
