Police: Stolen Items From Multiple Burglaries Found in Carmel
A search warrant at a Hudson Valley residence led to the arrest of two people who live on the same street and the recovery of multiple stolen items from more than one reported burglary.
According to the Putnam County Sherriff’s Office, on Jan. 19 a Carmel man told police that numerous items were stolen from his parent’s house while they were away. A police investigation determined that 26-year-old Joseph W. Braun and Danny Groissi, 24, both of Fowler Avenue in Carmel, were the suspects.
On Jan. 30 officials executed search warrants at the Fowler Avenue residence and found numerous items that had been reported stolen. Groissl and Braun were arrested and charged two counts of 2nd-degree burglary, a felony. It wasn’t fully clear based on the press release if they two were living together.
Police say during their search at the residence additional items were recovered that had been linked to a separate burglary case currently under investigation by the Town of Carmel Police Department.
At the time of his arrest, Groissl was also the subject of an active Bench Warrant issued by the Town of Carmel Justice Court on charges of grand larceny.
The two defendants were arraigned at Putnam Valley Court and committed to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $50,000.00 cash bail or $100,000 bond. They are due at the Town of Carmel Justice Court on a future date.
If found guilty of the felony charges, the defendants could each face up to 15 years in a New York State Correctional Facility and a fine of up to $15,000 for each charge.
