Hogansburg woman cited
with theft of television

MASSENA — Village police charged Mallory J. Cree, 27, of 127 Frogtown Road, Hogansburg, with third-degree burglary and petit larceny early Wednesday.

Police said the charge stemmed from an incident shortly before 11:30 p.m. April 10 when she allegedly broke into the residence of Devin Cole and Khuong Hong at 142 McKinley Ave. and stole a 19-inch television.

Mr. Hong told police that he was watching television with his girlfriend, Tiffany Snyder, when they heard a noise.

He said that when he investigated, he found Ms. Cree and four other women breaking into the residence.

Despite his protest, he said, the women pushed their way into the home, took the television and left.

"Mallory said Devin owed her money," Mr. Hong wrote in the statement he signed for police.

He told police that three children were in the residence at the time of the burglary, and that a 10-month-old boy was stepped on by one of the women when they were fleeing the residence.

Ms. Cree was arraigned by Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson and released from St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, after posting $1,500 bail.

his home during dispute

MASSENA —Village police charged Eric L. Smith, 32, of 7 Liberty Ave., with third-degree criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child after he reportedly used a hammer to damage his home during a domestic dispute Tuesday evening.

He also allegedly grabbed a phone and threw it three times. The behavior reportedly took place in front of a 4-year-old child.

Ms. Smith told police she left the home in an attempt to diffuse the situation. She said when she returned home, she found numerous holes in the Sheetrock and floor and a hammer stuck in the wall.

Mr. Smith, who police said appeared to be intoxicated, was found a short time later walking on East Orvis Street and was taken into custody without incident.

He was arraigned by Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson and sent to the St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, on $1,500 bail.
