The Auburn Police Department arrested three individuals following an investigation into a string of residential burglaries that occurred between Oct. 11 and Oct. 13.
Police said Thursday that a 16-year-old male was charged for his role in the five burglaries that took place near Perrine Avenue and Bradley Street in the city of Auburn. The suspect, whose name was not released because of his age, is charged with three counts of second-degree burglary, six counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, three counts of petit larceny and one count each of fourth-degree grand larceny and third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
Two other suspects were also arrested after police say they attempted to sell a number of guns that were determined to be stolen from a Perrine Avenue home.
Tevin T. Pysnack, 21, and Jessica C. Stanton, 19, both of 82 Chapman Ave., Auburn, were caught by police during the attempted transaction, according to APD. Pysnack is charged with six counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and Stanton faces three counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
An investigation began after APD received reports that several firearms, hunting equipment and a gray Ford F-150 pickup truck were taken during the series of break-ins. APD executed two search warrants in the city of Auburn that led to the three arrests as well as the recovery of other guns that were reported stolen during the burglaries. The pickup truck was also recovered.
Police say the investigation is continuing and ask anyone with information to contact Capt. David Delfavero at (315) 255-4705 or Detective Jeff Mead at (315) 255-4702. Anonymous tips may also be left at firstname.lastname@example.org.
