Police said Kristen Wilkie, 25, was in her bedroom at 151 Benson Road when she heard bags rustling outside her door. Thinking it was a housemate, police said,she opened her door and saw a man she didn’t recognize, later identified as Mr. Green, coming out of the next room. He allegedly asked her where a person was.

“She told him no one by that name lived there, and Mr. Green indicated he was in the wrong house,” police said.

Ms. Wilkie’s housemate, Connor Otero, 17, was alerted of the alleged intruder when he returned and reported items, missing from his room when he called police 9:38 p.m.

Mr. Green was taken into custody at the Madrid Health Clinic. He was arraigned in Pierrepont Town Court and sent to St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, on $1,000 cash bail or $2,000 bond.
