Afton brothers accused of burglarizing home for scrap

GUILFORD – The Chenango County Sheriff’s Office says two Afton brothers stripped metal pipes and radiators from the interior of a Guilford home to sell as scrap.



Deputies arrested 29-year-old Clifford J. Beardsley and 31-year-old Gary G. Beardsley of Afton Monday and charged them with third degree burglary.

Lt. Richard Cobb said the men removed all the radiators and copper piping from a Guilford home on Saturday.

Cobb said a woman in charge of caring for the unoccupied farmhouse used the home’s water the day before, but was unable to water livestock at the residence the following day.
