Four people from Moravia are facing criminal charges after allegedly stealing items from a Seneca County residence they broke into, state police said.

New York State Police Investigator Leland Tyler said Tasha M. Sweeney, 26, Darrin M. Hayes, 28, Helen R. Calkins, 27, and Timothy M. Gower, 29, broke into a home on Route 318 in the Seneca County town of Tyre at least twice over a couple days this week. The four took copper, equipment and other items from the residence, Tyler said. He said most of the stolen items have since been recovered.
