The Daily Star

---- — Chenango County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a village of Sherburne man on April 3 after he allegedly stole firearms from a residence two years ago.

Deputies responded to the Wyoming State Correctional Facility in Attica to arrest Jason L. Wheeler, 32, on an active arrest warrant issued by the town of Sherburne, according to deputies.

An investigation into a report of stolen firearms from a local residence was conducted by the detectives division in April 2012 and led to a warrant for Wheeler’s arrest being issued, deputies said. On Thursday, Wheeler was charged with second-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny.

Wheeler was arraigned in the town of Sherburne court and sent to the Chenango County Correctional Facility on $5,000 cash bail.
