Snow on snow on snow; Oswego County residents sure have seen and felt their fair share of it this year. It delays plans, freezes bones, and even tells a story.
A Byrne Dairy in the town of Hastings was robbed by two 17 year olds, forceful enough to steal what they wanted, but not smart enough to cover their tracks. Literally.
Oswego County sheriff’s deputies tracked the culprits’ footprints through the snow back to 116 Roxbury Estates, a trailer park not too far from the held up Byrne Dairy.
Frank J. Burt and Jeremy L. Champney, both 17, have been charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree robbery and fourth-degree conspiracy.
Robbery in the first degree is the taking of anything of value by the use of force or intimidation. Second-degree robbery is the taking of anything of value and the offender intentionally inflicts serious bodily injury. Champney was also charged with resisting arrest.
No reports on what exactly was stolen have been released, but deputies have returned the stolen property from the Byrne Dairy.
The Hansel and Gretel duo will be arraigned in town court within the coming weeks.
