DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - A trio from Dover is facing felony charges after being busted attempted to burglarize a Cooperstown Road home on President’s Day.
State police were dispatched to Cooperstown Road for a potential burglary in progress on Monday morning after a “vigilant” resident reported that two people had entered a nearby home, removed items from the property and left in a vehicle.
While en route to the 911 call, troopers spotted a vehicle matching the description of the reported burglars, police said. The three occupants of the vehicle were reportedly known to the troopers as Dwayne Robbins, 25, James Moore, 25 and Kelsey Vincent, 23.
According to police, the vehicle in question would later be located by troopers at Southeast Auto Recycling in Dover. The subsequent investigation would determine that the trio had salvaged the items taken during the burglary at the recycling center, where they were taken into custody.
While at the scene, it was determined that the vehicle, which was operated by Vincent, had a forged inspection sticker, switched license plates, no insurance and that her license had been suspended.
All three were charged with a felony count of third-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Vincent was also charged with a felony count of possession of a forged instrument.
Robbins, Moore and Vincent were arraigned in the Town of Dover Court and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond. They are due back in court on Monday, March 13.
