Teen charged after three Clarence burglaries

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Erie County Sheriff Deputies say a 13-year-old faces felony charges in connection with three recent burglaries in Clarence. 

On Sunday, deputies were called to an address on Clearview Drive to investigate the first burglary. The homeowner said items stolen included an iPhone, a camera, tools, a GPS watch, and jewelry.  

Deputies also responded to a burglary on Fox Trace Street, where they observed indications that someone had tried to break in to a residence. 

After these incidents, deputies were then called to Ledge Lane to investigate a third burglary. The suspect of this break-in allegedly went through a purse and then viewed pornographic websites on one of the resident's laptops. 

One of the break-in victims described a suspicious teenager who may have been responsible for the burglary. Deputies were able to use this description to find the 13-year-old, who admitted to burglarizing two houses and not being able to enter the third. 

The teen, whose name is not being released due to his age, is charged with a felony count of burglary and a felony count of attempted burglary. These charges are in addition to the misdemeanors of petit larceny, criminal trespassing and two counts of criminal mischief. He was released to a parent's supervision and has been issued tickets to appear in Family Court.
