Two charged in wave of drug-motivated thefts

NORWICH – The Chenango County Sheriff’s Office brought 21 different open investigations – involving two dozen victims and approximately 60 pieces of stolen property worth more than $9,000 – to a close earlier this month with the arrest of two young men.



Sgt. Detective Richard Cobb said the incidents began around Sept. 1 with a rash of thefts from vehicles. The thefts continued until about a week before the two defendants were arrested on Oct. 14.

Deputies have charged 17-year-old Samuel J. Ackerman of Valley View Trailer Park and 20-year-old Nicholas L. Buccelli of Canaswacta Street, Norwich, each with 18 counts of petit larceny, six counts of fourth degree conspiracy, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and two counts of felony grand larceny.

The teen’s name was released because he is charged with a felony as an adult.
