A Canastota Man Is Facing Criminal Charges In 2 Counties
Brandon E. Garlock, 31, was locked-up in the Madison County Jail for allegedly stealing a U-Haul box truck and illegal drug possession. Otsego County deputies were tipped off that a truck was stolen from a U-Haul rental lot in the Town of Hartwick.
That triggered a bi-county response. Sheriff’s deputies from Otsego and Madison counties coordinated a joint investigation that was launched in early May and resulted in an arrest on June 8th.
Following multiple leads, the probe lead to Garlock being identified as the main suspect. “A suspect was developed and found to reside in Madison County,” according to a media release send to CNY News from Sgt. Kristopher Solovitch with the Otsego County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies shadowed the Canastota resident and he was eventually spotted in the box truck. Cops pursued the vehicle through several towns in Madison County. The chase ended when the truck went off the road in Smithfield.
Authorities say Garlock and a woman identified as Kayla R. Hall, 20, of Oneida, were arrested and taken into custody. Deputies said they found methamphetamine and drug packaging materials in the truck. Garlock is facing criminal allegations in both Otsego and Madison counties. Charges include grand larceny and criminal mischief.
The defendant was processed in Otsego County and remains in Madison County Jail, according to the media release.
