Tonawanda News — LOCKPORT — A pair of teens face a number of charges after they allegedly stole property from multiple vehicles and crashed another into an Ontario Street residence.
Dylan L. Roberts, 18, 2500 Parker Road, Ransomville, and Corey W. Haseley, 18, 117 Ontario Street, Lockport were charged Saturday with two counts of petit larceny, fourth-degree criminal mischief and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
According to police reports, Roberts and Haseley will “be charged with additional crimes in several cases,” after police took in other stolen property as evidence after locating the men early Saturday.
An investigation into multiple vehicle thefts is underway. The Lockport Police Department has asked that residents who find that items were stolen from their vehicles on Saturday contact LPD.
The mischief, stolen property and one of the larceny charges stem from an incident reported by an Ontario Street woman. She told police that unknown suspects entered two unlocked vehicles parked in her driveway some time after 3 a.m. Saturday.
Among the items stolen from her vehicles were change and a GPS unit. One item that was not stolen was a blood pressure cuff that police observed was covered in blood.
A second victim told police that the two suspects had come to her home early Saturday with lacerations on their hands. She told police that she gave them first aid, but the men refused further treatment and were difficult to deal with.
She asked them to leave and they did, but the victim later found that her key set and cell phone were gone. Roberts and Haseley both later received treatment for injuries sustained in the crimes at ENH-Lockport.
The report says those items were in Haseley’s possession when he and Roberts returned to the LPD to recover property they had stolen earlier in the day. The victim identified the items as those missing from her apartment.
Police observed a green Blazer-type vehicle at the residence, which had been driven into the building, causing damage to both. A property receipt for the items taken from the suspects was found on the front seat of the vehicle.
The vehicle, which belongs to a Newfane man, was towed. The report says charges are pending for the damage to the house and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
Roberts and Haseley are scheduled to appear Monday in City Court.
