Arrest in Hancock Burglary

Written By Editor on 10/19/20 | 10/19/20

Hancock, NY – Today, Sheriff Craig S. DuMond announced that on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, Sheriff’s Investigators arrested and charged a Parksville, NY, man in connection with an early January burglary at a convenience store in the Village of Hancock.  The arrest is a part of a lengthy, and on-going, multi-jurisdictional investigation being conducted by several Federal, State, County and local law enforcement agencies and District Attorney’s Offices into numerous commercial burglaries in the states of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Early Thursday morning, January 2, 2020, Delaware County Sheriff's Deputies and Investigators responded to a burglary at the Hancock County Store.  Upon arrival, Deputies discovered forced entry to the business and the apparent theft of merchandise from the store.  Deputies and Investigators recovered physical evidence at that location that was believed to have left by the perpetrator. 

During their investigation, Deputies and Investigators noted similarities in that burglary and the December 9, 2019, burglaries at the Hancock Mirabito Convenience Store and the Hancock, NY, Post Office that were being investigated by Sheriff’s Investigators, Village of Hancock Police and United State Postal Inspectors, as well as other commercial and Post Office burglaries in Delaware and Sullivan Counties that were being investigated by New York State Police and U.S. Postal Inspectors. 

A suspect in the Hancock Country Store burglary was later identified as a result of the forensic analysis of physical evidence recovered from the scene of the burglary at that location.
