Putnam County Man Charged in Residential Burglaries
Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith reports the arrest of a Kent resident on criminal charges stemming from two residential burglaries occurring in the Town of Patterson.
In early November of 2013, the Sheriff’s Office received complaints from homeowners residing in the Fair Street area of Patterson reporting that their houses were unlawfully entered and a quantity of United States currency and precious metals stolen from within.
The cases were referred to Investigator Thomas Corless of the Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Detectives from the Town of Kent Police Department joined sheriff’s investigators in conducting the probe.
Their investigation resulted in the arrest of 34 year-old Kyle Patrick Sullivan of 42 Whangtown Road. He was charged with two counts of Burglary in the Second Degree, a class “C” felony. Mr. Sullivan was arraigned before Patterson Town Justice Anthony Mole and remanded to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 bond.
Some of the stolen property has been recovered.
If convicted of a single burglary charge, Mr. Sullivan may be sentenced to a term of up to fifteen years in a New York State correctional facility as determined by a court.
