On 09/29/12 at approximately 10:40 am Seneca Falls Police Department arrested a 14-year-old juvenile for Felony Burglary in the 2nd degree and Felony Grand larceny in the 4th degree. The charges stem from a report that dates back to 09/04/12 where Seneca Falls Police responded to 25 Peterman Road for a report of a Burglary. The victim of the Burglary reported that he had one Romarm AK-47 and a Mossberg .22 rifle stolen from his apartment.

After locating the two weapons in the vehicle and running the serial numbers, it was discovered both weapons were reported stolen from 25 Peterman Road on 09/04/12. After further investigation it was found that the 14 year old juvenile entered the apartment and took the two weapons. It is alledged that the two weapons then were given to Christine L. Maddox age 41 of 133 Elm Street Geneva,
Ny 14456 and Gary A. Goodman age 56 of 133 Elm Street Geneva, NY 14456 just before the traffic stop. The juvenile is to appear in Family Court on a later date.
