Troopers found 3 handguns, a television, a laptop and jewelry, all believed to have been taken from 4 separate residences in both the Town of Westmorland and the City of Rome.

Claycomb, who is currently behind bars at the Oneida County Jail on unrelated charges, was charged with 2 counts of Felony Burglary, 1 count of Felony Grand Larceny, 1 count of Misdemeanor Identity Theft and 1 count of Petit larceny.
