CALEDONIA – A young local woman has been arrested on seven counts of Burglary Second Degree after several residential burglary investigations throughout northern Livingston County, including Avon and York, have pointed to her as the prime suspect, and she is anticipated to be charged with more crimes in other counties as investigations continue.
According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, Nicole Green, 28, of Caledonia, was arrested on Friday, April 10, by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Sheriff’s Office in connection with a burglary that happened in a Caledonia residence, and further investigation into burglaries in the Town of Avon and Town of York led to six more Burglary charges for Green.
“Great teamwork by several divisions and units of the Sheriff’s Office brought great closure to a string of burglaries,” said Sheriff Dougherty. “Most of these homeowners had not even realized their home had been broken into and they had fallen victim of a crime. The upside was when Deputies told them they had been burglarized, they were also able to tell them the case was solved.”
It is alleged that Green had been entering unlocked homes since the beginning of March and stealing jewelry and money.
Green has been remanded to the custody of the Sheriff on $30,000 cash bail and is being held in the Livingston County Jail.
According to the Department of Corrections, Green is also on parole for Attempted Burglary in the Second Degree, and a Parole Violation Detainer has been secured by NYS Parole. The detainer holds her in custody regardless of bail.
The Sheriff added that Green may be facing charges in other counties and other arrests are expected by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
Several Investigators of the Criminal Investigations Division of the Sheriff’s Office worked diligently on this case led by Captain Brian Applin. Several Deputies of the Forensic Identification Unit of the Sheriff’s Office provided evidence collection and efforts into solving these crimes, led by Sergeant Chad Vanauken. Deputies from the Patrol Services Division fielded the original reported burglary and worked together with CID and FIU to solve these crimes.
