K9 units tracks 43 year old attempting to escape, in a tree
On Thursday, June 22, 2023, members of the New York State Police from the Horseheads barracks responded to a building located at 2031 Chambers Road in the town of Catlin for a report of a burglary in progress. Upon arriving, the Troopers observed a male and a female stealing scrap metal, mainly copper piping, from inside the building. The female was taken into custody, and the male fled the scene into a wooded area. The male was eventually taken into custody with the assistance of a Chemung County Sheriff Department K9 Unit, which tracked the suspect to where he was observed climbing a tree. Following the investigation, the New York State Police arrested Aaron C. Adair, age 43, of Bath, NY, and Krystin Webster, age 33, of Wellsboro, PA, on the charges of Burglary 3rd (D Felony) and Possession of Burglar Tools (A Misdemeanor). Both defendants were arraigned in the Town of Catlin Court, where Webster was released on her own recognizance, and Adair was committed to the Chemung County Jail with no bail pending future court action.
