An Oneida woman was arrested Thursday, Jan. 9 following a burglary in the town of Plymouth and two vehicle chases.

Tami L. Gray, 31, was arrested on charges of first-degree burglary, second-degree robbery, second-degree attempted robbery and the misdemeanors of second-degree menacing and second-degree reckless endangerment, according to a Friday, Jan. 10 state police media release. A male suspect, whose name state police have not released yet, has charges pending.

The Norwich Police Department pursued the car Thursday morning on county Route 10 A after the car failed to comply with a traffic stop, Troop C Public Information Officer Aga Dembinska told The Daily Star on Thursday.

Two people in the car 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. The two suspects were taken into custody. Dembinska on Thursday said one of the suspects may have been transported to Wilson Hospital in Johnson City.

Gray was processed and arraigned in the town of Plymouth court. There, she was remanded to the Chenango County Jail on $50,000 cash bail, according to the release. The investigation is ongoing.
