The Greene County Sheriff’s Office arrested Maria Uvino, age 30, and James Hartley, age 38,

both of Ashland. Uvino and her boyfriend, Hartley, had been the suspects in several burglaries in the Ashland area over the last few weeks. 

On December 27th a home owner heard someone in his attached garage trying to forcibly enter his kitchen, when he yelled, the perpetrators fled into a wooded area behind the residence. A GCSO Deputy, who was nearby, arrived immediately thereafter and saw the perpetrators in the woods. The Deputy entered the woods and gave chase, ultimately apprehending Uvino. 

A search continued for Hartley, who had made multiple threats to shoot police officers via phone and social media, throughout the next two days. The search concluded at approximately 3:00am this morning, 12/29/21, when Deputies found tracks in the snow leading to a vacant house on CR 10 also in Ashland. As Deputies approached the house, Hartley fired several rounds through the windows at them. A perimeter was established around the house and contact was made with Hartley who subsequently surrendered without further incident. Uvino was charged with Burglary 2nd degree, 2 counts of Felony Criminal Mischief, and 1 count of Possession of Stolen Property- she was arraigned before Judge Jacobs, T/Catskill Court, and was committed to the Greene County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail/ $100,000 bond on 12/27/21.

The investigation remains ongoing and multiple further charges with regards to the events this morning are forthcoming.
