New York State Police on Thursday announced the arrest of a second individual allegedly involved with a Chenango County burglary and two car chases last week.
Christopher A. Bonno, 30, of Oneida, was charged with second-degree menacing with a weapon, burglary of a dwelling with an explosive or deadly weapon, second-degree robbery with the aid of another and second-degree robbery of a motor vehicle, according to a media release.
Troop C Public Information Officer Aga Dembinska confirmed that Bonno’s arrest was connected with a Jan. 9 incident that also led to the arrest of Tami L. Gray, 31, of Oneida.
Gray was charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree robbery, second-degree attempted robbery, second-degree menacing and second-degree reckless endangerment, according to the release.
Dembinska told The Daily Star last week that Bonno and Gray were pursued by the Norwich Police Department on county Route 10 A after failing to comply with a traffic stop the morning of Jan. 9. The two then went to a residence in Plymouth, where they allegedly threatened the homeowner, who called police.
The two took off in the same car and were pursued up state Route 23 by Chenango deputies and state police into Cortland County. A tire deflation device was employed, ending the chase in the town of Willet, according to the release.
Gray was remanded to the Chenango County Jail on $50,000 cash bail.
Bonno is being held on an undisclosed amount of cash bail, according to state police arrest records.
