Delaware County Man Charged With Over a Dozen Burglary Counts
The Delaware County Sheriff’s office says it has two suspects in custody in connection with a string of burglaries last summer.
Authorities say during July and August, multiple burglaries were investigated in the Towns of Masonville, Tompkins, Franklin and Hamden. The break-in all had happened between June and August. New York State Police at the same time also received several reports of similar burglaries in the same area.
40-year-old Randy Hawkins and 38-year-old George Klinger III, both of Morris, were arrested in August for a burglary in the Town of Hamden and initially charged with one count each of felony burglary, criminal use of a firearm and criminal mischief.
A later search of the home the pair shared found evidence connecting the men to earlier burglaries.
Hawkins and Klinger are now charged with an additional 15 counts each of burglary for incidents in Masonville, Tompkins, Franklin and Hamden.
