A Utica man is facing charges after he allegedly tried to break into at least one home in New Hartford, according to the New Hartford Police Department.

On April 8, New Hartford police responded to several reports of attempted burglaries in developments off of Higby Road. Police say in at least one instance, an unknown man – now identified as 28-year-old Nicholas Roe of Utica – approached the front door of the house while people were home and tried to get inside.

When Roe was unsuccessful he left the area and returned a short time later, according to police. He then tried to get inside the house while attempting to disable the front door lock with a driver’s license. Roe was unsuccessful and fled the area shortly afterward, according to police.

Some of the criminal activity was captured on an outdoor video camera, which the New Hartford Police Department shared to its Facebook page last week in an attempt to identify the suspect.

Police say an investigation found that the crimes were committed around 11 p.m. April 7, and Oneida County Probation helped New Hartford police develop Roe as a suspect.

On April 16, with the help of New York State Police in Morrisville, New Hartford police responded to Morrisville and took Roe into custody. He's charged with felony second-degree attempted burglary and misdemeanor possession of burglar's tools.

Roe was arraigned at the Oneida County Jail, where he’s being held without bail. He’s scheduled to return to New Hartford court at a later date.

New Hartford police are asking local residents with any further information about this type of activity, or victims of the larcenies from April 7-8, to call them at 315-724-7111. Police say the investigation is ongoing.
