CORTLANDVILLE, N.Y. — New York State Police in Homer arrested a Lacona man on June 7 after he allegedly stole more than $800 worth of merchandise from a Walmart store in Cortlandville.
After being dispatched to a report of larceny at the store, troopers learned that employees witnessed Adrian Endsley, 46, of Lacona, fill a shopping cart with more than $836 worth of merchandise. He purchased just a soda at a self-checkout and never paid for any of the other items, the State Police said.
Endsley was charged with third-degree burglary. According to troopers, Endsley was previously banned from entering any Walmart due to previous incidents in the area. Due to that, he entered the premises unlawfully and committed a larceny, which makes the crime a burglary, the State Police explained.
Endsley was transported to Homer for processing before he was turned over to the Cortland County Jail for arraignment and processing.
