Amber Alert in Cortland County Has Ended
Bob Joseph/WNBF News [file][/caption]A Cincinnatus man is facing numerous felony and other counts after he reportedly violated an order of protection and fled from authorities with his one and half year old toddler, prompting an Amber Alert.
29-Year-old Kyle Heller was wanted by authorities and his family voiced concerns over his state of mind at around noon on May 29.
An Amber Alert was issued Sunday afternoon and Cortland County Sheriff’s Office deputies say they found Heller had broken into two homes in Freetown and Solon, allegedly stealing food and clothing while he was on the run.
Following tips from the public, Heller was taken into custody at 4:33 p.m. and his child was located, apparently unharmed.
Cortland County Sheriff’s officials say Heller is charged with two counts of felony burglary, two misdemeanor counts each of petit larceny, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal contempt as well as a misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a weapon.
Heller had previously been wanted in the Town of Freetown in connection with an incident last May 25 where he allegedly punched his 27 year old girlfriend several times and choked her.
He is charged with felony aggravated family offense as well as criminal obstruction of breathing and harassment in that incident.
