Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of an
Avon NY resident on felony Burglary charges after an investigation.
On July 4, 2020 at approximately 11:55 p.m. the Livingston County Emergency
Communications Center (E-911) received a call from an Avon resident who was on vacation
in Pennsylvania. The caller advised that he had security cameras in his home and he could
see someone walking around inside his residence. Responding members from the Sheriff’s
Office arrived to find an open door on the residence, several screens removed from windows
and a window air conditioner that had been pushed in. The residence was cleared by
Deputies and nobody was found to still be in the residence.
Through the course of the investigation, the homeowner advised Deputies that the person he
saw in his house through the security cameras matched the description of his neighbor.
Investigator Connor Sanford of the Criminal investigations Division continued the investigation
and ultimately arrested 52 year old Elizabeth A. Marcano from Avon NY for felony Burglary in
the 2nd Degree, two (2) counts of Criminal Mischief in the 4th Degree, Petit Larceny and
Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 5th Degree.
The stolen property was recovered and will be returned to the homeowner following
Marcano was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for
processing and pre-arraignment detention. Under the NYS Justice Reform Act, the charge of
Burglary Second Degree is now a qualifying offense in which a Judge may set bail. The
District Attorney’s Office was contacted and a bail recommendation of $5,000 cash or
$10,000 bond was provided.
