Three people suspected of 14 summertime burglaries at self-storage facilities throughout Onondaga and Oswego, N.Y., Counties were arrested last week. The crimes began at Pack Rat Storage in Cicero, N.Y., at the end of June. Over the following month, similar break-ins occurred in Clay, Cicero, East Syracuse, Lysander, Salina, Syracuse and other areas. A total of 100 self-storage units were compromised.
The arrest of Frank Boyd, 45, Jason Lawson, 26, and Jennifer Losee, 32, were the result of the combined efforts of several police agencies. The investigation begun by the Cicero Police Department was later joined by law-enforcement officials in other areas as similarities between incidents were recognized. A DNA swab from one of the crime scenes eventually led to a suspect.
In Clay, the suspects were charged with third-degree burglary, fourth-degree criminal mischief, petit larceny and possession of burglar tools. They will be charged with additional incidents in the other towns involved.
Facilities affected included Uncle Bob’s Self Storage in Clay, N.Y., and Faulkner’s Trackside Self Storage in East Syracuse.
