She is sick of it. Tracy Maybury is the co-owner of the Kountry Stop on Route 336 in the Town of Fayette which was allegedly broken into by four juveniles from the nearby Hillside Children's Center Sunday Morning around 1. Maybury says they were robbed by teens twice before (December 6th and the 16th) and each time the youths were after smokes.
The breakins are leading to costly repairs.
Maybury says she has spoken with Hillside officials trying to develop a plan to end the thefts.
The store is about 3 miles from Hillside. The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports investigators have arrested four juveniles for Burglary, Criminal Mischief and Petit Larceny. It is alleged that two 13 year olds and two 15 year olds, whose names are being with held due to their ages, left the campus of Hillside children’s center where they are being held. Authorities say the four youths took rocks from the roadside and threw them through the front window of the building. They then pushed out the broken glass and entered the building. While inside the four youths stole cartons and packs of cigarettes, cigars and lighters.
After removing the stolen items from the building the youths went back to the campus of Hillside children’s center where they hid the stolen property for use at a later time. All involved have been arrested and are to report to Seneca County Probation to commence court action for the crimes.
