BURGLARY - MASSENA - Village police picked up Melissa B. Wheeler, 26, of 500 County Route 8, Brushton, and William A. Beyers, 35, of 394 Hazen Road, North Lawrence, on arrest warrants at 10:10 p.m. Saturday after they were located in Malone by the Malone Police Department. They were charged with third-degree burglary, petit larceny and endangering the welfare of a child. The couple allegedly walked out of the Massena Walmart without paying for a generator valued at $499 and a car cover valued at $69.96. The burglary count was charged since Wheeler and Beyers had previously been barred from being on Walmart property after previous incidents so they allegedly illegally entered the building with the intent to commit the crime of petit larceny. Wheeler and Beyers were transported back to Massena, arraigned Monday morning by Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.

She said she responded by biting him on the wrist, and he released his hold and punched her on top of the head. She said the argument continued when she left his apartment and he stopped her from driving out of his driveway, jumped on the hood of her Jeep and then reached through the drivers window and grabbed her keys, throwing them.
