FELONY ARRESTS

PLATTSBURGH — A Keeseville man was arrested for his alleged connection to a stolen-weapons case.

Keith A. McCray, 23, was taken into custody Oct. 8 after allegedly admitting to Plattsburgh-based State Police that he had stolen multiple firearms from area residences, which he would then resell.

In a case dating back to May, police said they received multiple reports of stolen firearms, and after conducting extensive interviews in the area, learned of numerous individuals who had purchased stolen firearms from McCray in the past.

He was arrested at about 3:20 p.m. and charged with second-degree burglary, a felony, along with fourth degree criminal possession of a stolen weapon, a misdemeanor.

McCray was arraigned in Beekmantown Court before Judge Lawliss and remanded to Clinton County Jail in lieu of $1,000 bail.

Police reports did not specify when he is scheduled to reappear in court.

PLATTSBURGH — Two men were arrested for allegedly taking electronics from a home.

Edward W. Bouvia, 23, of Dannemora and Derek R. Bouvia, 27, of Plattsburgh were arrested Oct. 9 in connection with electronic items that went missing from a home, according to Plattsburgh-based State Police.

Nearly two years ago, someone called police to report a TV, laptop computer and other electronic items were missing from his recently deceased son’s home.

By conducting area interviews and tracking the laptop’s online activity through the computer’s manufacturer, police said they were able to track down the Bouvias.

Both men were charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony, and unauthorized use of a computer, a misdemeanor.

They were arraigned in the Town of Plattsburgh Court and remanded to Clinton County Jail in lieu of bail or bond.

Edward Bouvia remains in custody while Derek Bouvia was released on a court order.

No further information was available.
