Hugh J. Broadbent, 27, of 103 N. Orchard St., Apt. 3, was arrested by state police early Wednesday at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, and was taken to Lowville, where he is now being held without bail in Lewis County jail, Lowville.
Troopers charged him with third-degree burglary in connection with an intrusion in late January at a camp on Moose River Road, town of Lyonsdale. Knives, a rifle scope, liquor and other items were stolen from the camp, owned by Jerry Hutton, Boonville.
In Jefferson County, Mr. Broadbents arrest came as he completed a sentence given him in May for second-degree criminal possession of methamphetamine-making materials.
Police said more charges are pending against Mr. Broadbent in an investigation into a two-county crime spree that unraveled with an auto accident Feb. 1 at Indian Lake, Hamilton County. A man alleged to be Mr. Broadbent and a woman, Andrea L. Lynch, 29, Clayton, who were wanted by police in the methamphetamine case, abandoned the accident scene, police said.
The two were apprehended Feb. 9 in Ilion, Herkimer County. Meanwhile, stolen property, including items from the Hutton camp, were found in the abandoned vehicle in Hamilton County, police said.
Ms. Lynch awaits sentencing in November in both U.S. District Court and Jefferson County Court after pleading guilty to misappropriating $51,162 in postal funds, fourth-degree grand larceny and third-degree unlawfully manufacturing methamphetamine.
