Members of what police are calling a burglary ring in McKean County may have also stolen items from Warren County and pawned them in the Jamestown area.
Police say 20-year-old Garrett Hoy of Smethport is the ringleader of the group that also includes 20-year-oldTrevor Elder, 29-year-old Adam Bachman, 24-year-old Nathan Hoy and 20-year-old Austin Tankersley, all of Smethport, 19-year-old Cameron Causer of Crosby and 19-year-old Mark Schneider of Port Allegany.
In February, we reported that among the items stolen were chainsaws, ATVs and dirt bikes, and they were taken from the Borough of Smethport as well as Keating, Liberty, Norwich and Annin townships.
Police now believe a dirt bike that was stolen in McKean County on December 28 was traded to someone in Conewango Township in Warren County who didn’t know it was stolen. They also believe they sold or traded items in the Jamestown area.
Anyone who bought items from any of these men is asked to contact Trooper Mary Gausman at the Kane-based state police station.
Arrests have been made in some of the crimes are more arrests are pending.
