ONEONTA – After a rash of burglaries in the city, an Oneonta man has been arrested for stealing cash, credit cards and personal items from two homes and a vehicle in Center City, OPD Chief Doug Brenner said this morning.
Kyle A. Ives, 29, was arrested after police allegedly connected him to a series of break-ins last week. “With one arrest, we were able to solve three cases,” Brenner said.
He allegedly took credit cards and personal items, as well as less than $100 in cash from the houses and cars. “He took change from the cars and a jar of change,” said Brenner. “It’s a quick grab.”
The personal items were all recovered, said Brenner.
Ives was charged with two counts of burglary in the second degree, two counts of grand larceny – for the credit cards, said Brenner – and one count of petit larceny.
According to Brenner, police are still seeking suspects in the break-ins at the Hospice and Super Heroes in Ripped Jeans thrift stores last weekend. “We don’t believe Ives is tied to the Main Street burglaries,” he said.
