Two Black River teenagers face a growing list of charges in connection to a series of car break-ins around the county.
Adam M. Aviste, 18, of 28556 Route 342, and Brooke E. Craig, 17, of 176 West Remington St., were each charged Friday with one count of petit larceny and two counts of unauthorized use of a vehicle in connection to thefts around the town of LeRay.
However, police found a collection of items which linked them to a number of other thefts, including four break-ins around County Route 125 in Lyme on Aug. 27. For those thefts, the pair were charged with an additional four counts of petit larceny, nine counts of unauthorized use of a vehicle and one count of grand larceny in connection to the theft of a credit card in one of the vehicles they entered.
On Saturday evening, Trooper Kevin M. Rose estimated the value of items known to have been taken, which included music players, iPads, cameras, wallets and other miscellaneous items, ranged from $900 to $1,000.
They were taking everything, he said.
In addition to the charges they already face, Trooper Rose said more charges were pending based on additional break-ins they were linked to in Calcium and LeRay.
