ENDICOTT, N.Y. — New York State Police say they arrested Christian R. Wilson, age 23 of Endicott, twice in a one-week period, charging him with one felony and a pair of misdemeanors.

On the evening of Feb. 4, State Police in Marathon arrested Wilson for the felony of 4th degree criminal possession of stolen property and the misdemeanor of 4th degree criminal mischief. A trooper was dispatched to a report of a suspicious person on Webb Road in the town of Willet. A complainant called 911 after a man wearing nothing but black plastic garbage bags entered the complainant’s home but ultimately left the area. The trooper also located an abandoned vehicle in the ditch off Webb Road. The law-enforcement officer ultimately located Wilson behind a residence in a wooded area on State Route 41 in Willet, where he was taken into custody.

A further investigation revealed that the vehicle that Wilson had crashed was stolen from Broome County. Wilson was transported to State Police barracks in Homer, where he was evaluated by EMTs. He was then taken to Cortland County Central Arraignment and Processing, where he was arraigned and released on his own recognizance.

Then on Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 11, New York State Police at Owego arrested Wilson for the misdemeanor of criminal trespass in the second degree. State troopers and Tioga County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call from a residence on Coryell Road in the town of Nichols after a resident pulled up to their home and observed a man that did not belong there. When troopers and deputies arrived, the man was being detained by a witness that arrived on scene just moments prior.

Troopers’ investigation revealed that Wilson entered the unlocked residence but did not take anything. But, he did leave his shoes, a baseball cap, and a poncho in the home before being confronted by the witness. Wilson was arrested, processed, and released on an appearance ticket returnable to the Town of Nichols court next Thursday, Feb. 20.
