Three men from Syracuse have been charged with third-degree burglary in Genesee County for allegedly breaking into a pair of local businesses.
The trio are also suspected of burglaries and thefts in Erie and Livingston counties.
They were picked up following a traffic stop in Wayne County last week and deputies spotted what they thought might be stolen material in the vehicle.
Upon questioning by investigators in Wyoming County, the men admitted, according to Chief Deputy Jerome Brewster, to heists in Genesee County.
Investigator Kris Kautz took a trip to Wayne County and questioned the men and gathered the evidence, working with Deputy Brad Mazur, to file local charges.
Charged are brothers William H. Kelly III, 44, and Robert P. Kelly, 43, and Michael J. Correia, 58.
Additional charges may be pending.
The three men are accused of breaking into a Kutter's Cheese building, and stealing items from a residential construction site on East Main Street, Batavia, some time during the early morning of Aug. 27.
They were allegedly found with more than $3,000 in material, including brass plumbing components and copper wire.
They are being held without bail.
