Man accused of stealing $40 from woman with protection order against him


WATERTOWN — A city man charged in a burglary Sunday night on Goodale Street is being held in the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building on $15,000 cash bail.

City police said Andrew V. Lavere, 28, of 201 Sterling St., unlawfully entered the 241 Goodale St. residence of Lynn M. Tynon and demanded money. Ms. Tynon has a stay-away order of protection issued by Family Court forbidding Mr. Lavere to contact her.

While in the residence at about 8:45 p.m., Mr. Lavere shoved Ms. Tynon several times, pushed her down and took $40 that she kept on her person, police said.

Ms. Tynon attempted to flea, but Mr. Lavere refused to allow her to leave, repeatedly shoving her away from the door, police said.

Confronted shortly afterward, he ran away a uniformed officer despite being told he was under arrest, police said. After a brief foot chase, he was apprehended at 8:57 p.m. at the Dulles State Office Building, 317 Washington St.

He was charged with second-degree burglary, a class C felony; third-degree robbery, a class D felony; first-degree criminal contempt, a class E felony; petit larceny, resisting arrest and second-degree unlawful imprisonment, all misdemeanors; and second-degree harassment, a violation.

He was arraigned in City Court and sent to the jail.
