By WKTV News

WHITESBORO, N.Y. (WKTV) - A 21 year old man has been charged in connection to a burglary at a local dairy and ice cream shop.

According to Whitesboro Police, officers on patrol observed the front door glass broken out at the B&F Dairy on Roosevelt Drive around 4:44 a.m. Sunday morning.

An initial investigation found that the business had been burglarized and the suspect had fled the scene. Additional police units were then called to assist and the investigation that followed uncovered evidence inside the store as well as several blocks and several miles away.

Police said the suspect was found to have stolen cash from inside the business. No other items were taken.

Using store surveillance video, police determined that the suspect, identified as Justin P. McAvin, 21, had only been in the business for roughly 40 seconds before fleeing. As the investigation continued, police realized that they had missed the suspect by only 90 seconds when they discovered the damage to the front door.

There is no indication that anyone else was involved in the burglary, police said, and additional evidence and a portion of the stolen cash has been recovered by police.

McAvin was arrested Sunday evening and charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and fourth-degree grand larceny. He was arraigned in the Village of Whitesboro Court and sent to the Oneida County Jail.
