Utica, NY (WIBX) - An investigation into multiple brazen burglaries in east Utica is finally coming to a close with the arrest of three suspects. Utica police say the crimes were committed over several months on the following streets: Kossuth Avenue, Leeds and Wetmore Streets, Hoover and Jefferson Avenues and Armory Drive…just to name a few.

The suspects, 19-year-old Richard Walton and 20-year-old Christopher Lawson are facing 2nd Degree Burglary, (Class C-Felony) and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property charges. A 15-year-old juvenile is also accused of taking part in the crimes. However, his case is being handled by Family Court due to his age. Officials say additional charges could follow, as they suspect the “burglary ring” to be responsible for other crimes in the area.
