According to the Oneida County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Unit, on October 6, 2011, a residence on Cooper Street in the Town of Westmoreland was broken into and jewelry, silver coins and other valuables were taken. Shortly after the incident, Randi R. Jackson, 30, of Clark Mills, was taken into custody and charged with second-degree burglary.

Authorities said that as information and leads were developed, it was learned that another female, Tiffany L. Schultz, 23, of Clinton, also participated in the burglary. On February 13, 2012, members of the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Unit arrested Schultz for second-degree burglary. She was arraigned in the Village of New York Mills Court and remanded to the Oneida County Correctional Facility in lieu of $20,000 bail.
