According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, Sheriff Deputy Christopher Brosius and Sergeant Joseph Breu responded to 2616 Main Street in York on Thursday to investigate an alleged domestic dispute. Through their investigation, they discovered that Jessica Rossi, 33, had stolen a 12 gauge double-barreled shotgun from her ex’s house last Saturday, August 23.
To make matters worse, it was further learned that on Thursday, August 28th, Rossi went back to the same house, broke a rear basement window, and took the ex-boyfriend’s dog.
Deputy Brosius took Rossi into custody without incident and she was arraigned in front of York Town Justice David Porter.
Rossi was charged with two counts of Burglary in the Second Degree for her two illegal entrances of the house, Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree for taking the shotgun, Criminal Mischief in the Fourth Degree for the broken window, and petit larceny for the theft of the dog.
Rossi was remanded to the Livingston County Jail on bail. A complete stay away order of protection was issued, forbidding any contact between Rossi and her former boyfriend.
Assisting in the investigation was Investigator Bradley Schneider of the Livingston County Sheriff’s office, Sheriff Deputies Caleb Cutting and Matthew Moran, and Assistant District Attorney Josh Tonra.
