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.

When police arrived, they found two people inside the residence and Bosco allegedly in possession of a knife.

He was arrested about 20 minutes after police arrived.

Bosco was charged with two counts of first-degree unlawful imprisonment, a felony, and second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal mischief, both misdemeanors.

He was arraigned in the Town of Moira Court and remanded to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $1,000 cash or $2,000 bond. An order of protection was also issued.

Police said they received numerous complaints of damaged boxes and upon further investigation learned Barron, an unnamed juvenile and Joseph E. Boyle, 19, of Saranac Lake went to a scrap yard and found a three-foot long piece of scrap metal that they later used in their crime spree.

All three suspects were charged with second-degree criminal mischief, a felony, and arraigned in the Town of Harrietstown Court. 

Barron was released on her own recognizance to a family member and is due back in court Nov. 7.

Boyle was remanded to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $20,000 cash or $40,000 bond.

DANNEMORA — Three departments responded to a chimney fire here Oct. 12.

A family member at the Rock residence called 911 after seeing smoke coming from the exterior of their 57 Bouck St. home at about 2 p.m.

Dannemore Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mike Recore said that before his crew arrived, two firefighters from the Saranac Fire Volunteer Fire Department who happened to be near the home saw the smoke near the chimney on their way by and quickly tried to find the problem.

Recore said the home’s roof sustained partial damage, but no one was injured.

It appears the chimney malfunctioned, igniting the small fire, he said.

In addition to the Dannemora and Saranac departments, Cadyville Volunteer firefighters also responded.

Recore said his crew was back in service by 3:25 p.m.
