MALONE — Police say three men burgled valuable antiques, cash and prescription drugs from several homes and businesses in northern Franklin County.
Shawnessy T. Newvine, 27, of Brushton; Corey F. Waldron, 25, of Moira; and Shawn H. Waldron, 29, of Westville were taken into custody this week, and other arrests were pending, according to State Police Troop B Public Information Officer Trooper Jennifer Fleishman.
The burglaries took place in September, October and November, she said.
And with search warrants in hand, Fleishman said, State Police found stolen property and drug paraphernalia at the homes of both Waldrons.
She didn’t know how the pair might be related.
Newvine was charged with one count each of second-degree and third-degree burglary, both felonies; fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor; fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana, second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, all misdemeanors.
He was arraigned in Bangor Town Court and sent to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail or $20,000 bond.
A charge of third-degree burglary indicates the suspect broke into a building; the more-serious charge of second-degree burglary indicates a dwelling was breached, Fleishman said, or, among other specifics, the suspect was armed or carrying what appeared to be a firearm.
Corey Waldron was charged with two counts of second-degree burglary and one count of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
He was arraigned in Bangor Court, with bail set at $50,000/$100,000 bond.
Shawn Waldron was charged with two counts of second-degree burglary and one of third-degree burglary
Following arraignment in Moira Town Court, he also was sent to the jail; his bail/bond is the same as Corey’s.
Among the burglaries police investigated in connection with the three men, Fleishman said, was one on Sept. 16 at a home on State Route 95 in Moira.
