Three people were arrested last week in connection with a series of burglaries at Lucenda Self Storage in Plattsburgh, N.Y. The thefts at 290 Margaret St. occurred between Feb. 18 and 27, according to Plattsburgh City Police Chief Levi Ritter. A facility employee notified authorities on Feb. 25 after noticing locks had been cut from several units.
Allen Duval, 29, Rachel Duval, 27, and David Garrant, 28, have been charged with seven felony counts of third-degree burglary and two felony counts of fourth-degree grand larceny. They’re also facing five counts of petit larceny, a misdemeanor, according to the source. Allen Duval has also been charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, another misdemeanor. More charges could be coming as the investigation continues, Ritter said.
All three were arraigned at Plattsburgh City Court on Friday. Allen Duval and Garrant were remanded to Clinton County Jail while Rachel Duval was released on her own recognizance. Her next court appearance is April 2. Court dates for Garrant and Allen Duval are March 20 and March 26, respectively.
Lucenda Self Storage offers climate-controlled and drive-up units, 24-hour access, moving and packing supplies, and U-Haul truck rentals. It’s managed by Plattsburgh Self-Storage Group, which also operates Easy Self Storage at 788 NY-3 and a retail rental space at 24 Margaret St., both in Plattsburgh. The group plans to open another facility in the city on Sharon Avenue to accommodate vehicle storage.
