Three men enter guilty pleas in burglary spree in Western Sullivan County

All three are scheduled to be sentenced on July 26, 2012, in Sullivan County Court.

Farrell said that the burglary ring was broken up after an investigation by the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Department with assistance from the New York State Police. All three were arrested on December 14, 2011, after an separate investigation into the car arson in Cochecton by the Sheriff’s Department.

“These three young men were engaged in very serious criminal conduct, breaking into multiple homes and a business, stealing valuable personal property, torching a vehicle, and Simon, in an attempt to cover up a previous burglary set fire to a home that resulted in significant damage to the structure. The plea agreements and state prison sentences recognize the wave of crime these young men were engaged in and will hold them responsible and accountable”, Farrell said.
