MURRAY – Three teen-agers have been charged with second-degree burglary and petty larceny after they allegedly broke into a home on Monroe-Orleans Countyline Road in Murray on Tuesday, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department reported today.

The three teens are suspected in numerous burglaries in eastern Orleans and possibly in Monroe County as well, the Sheriff’s Department said.

Deputies arrested the following: Benjamin A. Odeychuk, 19, of 4335 Holley Byron Rd., Holley; Victor P. Odeychuk, 17, of 4335 Holley Byron Rd., Holley; and Louis D. Monacelli, 17, of 4104 Monroe-Orleans Countyline Rd., Brockport.

The three were taken into custody on Tuesday by members of the State Police and Orleans County Sheriff’s Department after a homeowner returned home to find the burglary in progress, the Sheriff’s Department reported.

The department learned through its investigation that the three were responsible for a burglary that occurred on Feb. 26 on Countyline Road in the town of Murray. The three were charged with second-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny for that incident. All three were arraigned in the Town of Murray Court for the two incidents and were remanded to the Orleans County Jail on $25,000 bail.

Numerous items have been recovered that were previously reported stolen. Additional charges are forthcoming on the three, as well as others that may have been involved, the department reported.

The Sheriff’s Department was assisted by the State Police, Albion Police Department and the Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force.
