Three men from Buffalo were arrested yesterday in connection with two daytime residential burglaries in Darien in which $3,000 in cash, plus jewelery and other valuables were stolen.
One of the suspects, Justin M. Falter, 19, is reportedly a former Genesee County resident who knew the families victimized by the burglaries.
All three men were picked up yesterday based on a tip from a concerned citizen who spotted a suspicious vehicle outside a Darien residence. The vehicle matched the description of a vehicle seen by a witness at one of the previous burglaries.
Sheriff's investigators believe the suspects were preparing for another burglary at the time of their arrest.
The other two suspects are (name redacted upon request), 19, and Ryan D. Przybylski, 22. All three men reportedly resided at 138 Marion St., Buffalo.
The first burglary reportedly occurred June 11 on Harlow Road. The victim reported $3,000 in cash stolen. On June 18, another burglary was reported on Seven Day Road. In this case, jewelery, liquor, electronics and clothing were reportedly stolen.
When Deputy Brian Thompson came upon the suspicious vehicle yesterday, all three suspects were reportedly in the vehicle. Upon further investigation, some of the reportedly stolen items were in the vehicle.
Yesterday evening a search warrant was executed at the Buffalo residence of the suspects and more allegedly stolen items were recovered.
(name redacted upon request) and Falter were charged with two counts of burglary in the second degree. Przybylski faces one count.
Przybylski and Falter are held in Genesee County Jail on $15,000 bail. DiNicola's bail is $20,000.
