Four charged with burglary waive felony hearing, three post bail

BUTTERNUTS The four Utica residents who have been held in the Otsego County Correctional Facility since they were apprehended following a nine-hour multi-agency search appeared in the Town of Butternuts Court Monday night for the purposes of a preliminary felony hearing.

The defendants were charged with burglary in the second degree, a class C felony. This means that it is alleged the defendants entered or remained unlawfully in a building or residence with the intent to commit a crime, and while in said building or in flight therefrom were either armed, caused physical injury to another person, used or threatened the use of a dangerous instrument, or displayed what appeared to be a firearm.
