VERONA, N.Y. – A Rome man was arrested for allegedly stealing tools and an iPhone from Lock 22 in the town of Verona last week.
According to police, a yellow Volkswagen Beetle owned by 26-year-old Dakota B. Mosley was spotted at the scene on Oct. 15, the day of the reported theft. The state police Criminal Investigation Unit had recognized the vehicle from previous incidents.
The investigation led troopers to local pawn shops, looking for recent transactions made by the suspect. Police say they found that some of the stolen items were sold to local pawn shops and the iPhone was sold to a pawn shop in Syracuse.
Mosley was arrested just outside Rome on Sunday, and charged with third-degree burglary, a felony.
Mosley was taken to the Oneida County jail for pre-arraignment detention after the arrest.
