An Auburn man accused of burglarizing two Cayuga County treat shops has claimed he was framed for the crimes.
Patrick Langworthy, of 39 Nelson St., was arrested last month following an investigation by New York State Police and the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office. According to a news release, Langworthy committed two separate burglaries in June — one at Tom Thumb Drive-In in Owasco, the other at Classic Cones in Throop.
The 43-year-old was arraigned on an indictment Tuesday in Cayuga County Court, where he was charged with three felonies — two counts of third-degree burglary and one count of fourth-degree grand larceny — and a misdemeanor — petit larceny. Cayuga County District Attorney Jon Budelmann said more charges are pending.
