Addison man charged in long-term burglary investigation; pair allegedly impersonated officers

The Steuben County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of an Addison man following a complaint, which was filed on July 2nd, 2016.

Deputies say they responded to the report of two men posing as law enforcement officers who entered a residence on Little Road in the Woodhull and allegedly stole $1,000 from a bedroom while a young adult was located inside the residence.

The office conducted an ongoing investigation into the reported burglary and on December 8th arrested Neil E. Davis, 42, of Cameron.

On Thursday, the Addison Police Department stopped a vehicle in the Village of Addison after a string of larcenies were reported in the Town of Tuscarora.

During the vehicle and traffic investigation, the operator of the vehicle was detained and subsequently interviewed by Deputy Sheriffs later in the afternoon at the Addison Police Department.

During that interview, the subject spoke with the Deputy Sheriff and Criminal Investigator about his alleged involvement in the string of reported larcenies on this date as well as his alleged involvement in the incident on July 2nd, 2016 in the Town of Woodhull with Davis.

The charges stem from his involvement in the July 2nd incident with Davis. Dixon was arraigned in Campbell Town Court and was remanded to the Steuben County Jail on no bail.

His next date in court will be on February 6th.

Deputies and investgators also conducted a search of a residence on Hallett Road in the Town of Addison last night where several thousand dollars in tools and other equipment were recovered from the recent reported larcenies.
