NORWICH – When the Chenango County Court met for an afternoon session on Monday, July 11, the case of Blair D. Elderkin was heard.

Elderkin, 23, of Sidney, appeared with his appointed public defender, John Cameron. Assistant District Attorney Laura Parker represented the people of Chenango County in the case, while The Honorable Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr. presided over matters.

Elderkin was originally indicted on five charges back in February of 2016, including two felonies and three misdemeanors. Elderkin was charged with two counts of burglary in the second degree, a class C felony; and three counts of petit larceny, a class A misdemeanor.

It was alleged that Elderkin did knowingly enter and remain unlawfully in a residence in the Town of Guilford on Dec. 25, 2015, with the intent to commit a crime. A crime was committed when Elderkin allegedly stole a department store gift card, a ceramic John Deere buck with a handle, and approximately $800 in United States currency.

The second burglary count alleged that Elderkin, on the same date but at a different residence, did steal several lottery tickets and a pair of pink and black ear buds.

The three counts of petit larceny alleged that Elderkin stole $100 from a parked vehicle of another victim, then moved to another parked vehicle where he took a Gander Mountain Camo Jacket, a Gander Mountain pink and white blanket, CB radio, a carburetor, RC car battery pack, machete, and approximately $20 in loose change.
