MASSENA — Four Massena residents were charged Monday in connection with a residential burglary in which a .32-caliber handgun was stolen earlier this month on Nightengale Avenue.

Village police said Caleb J. Mossow, 16, of 9 N. Clarkson Ave., admitted to throwing a party July 14 at the home of his grandparents, who were away.

Mr. Mossow said he showed the gun to his friends during the party.

The youths spent the night at the home, and Mr. Mossow was the last to leave the next day, he said. He told police that he checked to make sure the gun was still there before he left.

Mr. Mossow said he returned to his grandparents’ home Saturday to mow the lawn and noticed that the residence was a mess and that the gun was no longer in the house.

Mr. Mossow told police that his friends admitted they had another party at the house.

Mr. Mossow was charged with second-degree burglary and petit larceny.

He was arraigned by Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson and released to the supervision of probation.

Sawyer E. White, 16, of 41 Somerset Ave., was charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree criminal sale of a firearm, fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and petit larceny.

Jesse K. Jordan, 16, of 351 E. Orvis St., Apt. A, Massena, also was charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree criminal sale of a firearm, fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and petit larceny.

Mr. White and Mr. Jordan were arraigned by Judge Gustafson and sent to St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, on $1,000 bail or $2,000 bond.

They are accused of selling the stolen gun to Dusty Huckle, 20, of 351 E. Orvis St., Apt. 15, who was charged with third-degree criminal sale of a firearm, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Mr. Huckle was arraigned by Judge Gustafson and sent to St. Lawrence County jail on $1,000 bail or $2,000 bond.

Village police said that as a result of their investigation, they obtained a search warrant to be executed at 351 E. Orvis St., where the stolen gun was recovered.
