ALBION – A Medina man admitted in Orleans County Court that he was in possession of two vehicles and also broke into a barn.

Brandon Fuller, 28, pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree and third-degree burglary. He could face 2 to 6 years in state prison when he is sentenced on May 10.

Fuller admitted in county court on Wednesday that he had a 2005 Ford 500 passenger vehicle on Nov. 15 and 2005 Chevrolet Silverado on Feb. 1. Both vehicles were stolen and in either fairly good or good condition.

Fuller also admitted that on Sept. 30 he entered a barn on Gaines Basin Road without permission. Fuller had items stacked up by doors of the barn, and was hiding from law enforcement when they were called to the scene, Assistant District Attorney Susan Howard told County Court Judge Sanford Church.

Fuller was most recently charged on Feb. 1 after a high-speed vehicle pursuit from Route 31A in Barre to near Redman Road in Brockport.

Fuller’s plea agreement on Wednesday also will satisfy other misdemeanors charges he faces, as well as violations of probation.
