Authorities have charged two Danbury, CT residents in the August burglary of a Southeast business, officials announced this week.
Sherri Amanda Lynn Davis, 38, and Robert A. Brown, 40, are each facing one count of felony third-degree burglary in connection with the incident, which occurred at a Route 22 gas station, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.
The owner filed a complaint with the agency Aug. 18, stating that his establishment "had been broken into and cash stolen from the register" the night before. Police did not name the gas station.
Uniformed deputies handled the case initially, before members of the Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Investigation took the lead. They reportedly worked with police in Connecticut and identified Brown and Davis as suspects.
Arrest warrants were issued for both defendants, and officials logged information for each into a national crime computer, according to police.
"Mr. Brown was located in a Connecticut correctional facility after his Dec. 4 arrest on local charges," officials said. "The arrest warrant ... was lodged by investigators at that facility. He will be held pending extradition proceedings ordering Mr. Brown’s return to Putnam County to answer the burglary charge."
State Police arrested Davis on unrelated charges last week, the release stated. They turned her over to the Sheriff's Office, who had her arraigned before Town Justice Richard Vercollone.
Vercollone sent her to Putnam County Correctional Facility on $7,500 cash or $20,000 bond bail. Davis posted bail and was released.
