Two Arrested For Stealing Metal From Businesses And Selling It For Scrap

2 Arrested for Vehicle Scrap Larcenies
 
Between November 30 and December 19, 2012, the State Police based in Olean, received reports from several area automotive businesses regarding stolen vehicle parts. The businesses are located in the towns of Allegany, Hinsdale, Olean and Portville. 

While conducting a follow up investigation at a local scrap yard regarding the larcenies, the investigating Trooper was able to locate some of the stolen property and developed two suspects. A further examination of the scrap yard’s records revealed additional property that had been recently turned in by the same subjects. The property consisted of rolled aluminum gutters, also from a local business, and numerous brake rotors; but at that time there was not a complainant.

The Trooper contacted the business owner of the gutters who confirmed it was indeed his missing property. 

Also, while at the scrap yard, the Trooper was approached by a subject stating that he was there in an attempt to locate some vehicle parts and additional scrap that was taken from his property. The man and Trooper were able to locate the property and a case was opened for this property owner.

At this point, there were five complainants that had their property turned in for scrap. Upon interviewing the first suspect, he confirmed that he had perpetrated the larcenies with the help of the second suspect. He also admitted to a sixth larceny of the brake rotors. That property owner was contacted and also confirmed that he was indeed missing the property. 

The total value of the stolen property was over $4,000. Joseph Vavrecan, 27, of Hinsdale was charged with Grand Larceny 3rd (1 count –a Felony), Grand Larceny 4th (1 count), and Petit Larceny (4 counts). 

The second suspect was also interviewed and confirmed his involvement in the larcenies. Michael Crawford, 22, of Allegany was charged with Grand Larceny 3rd and Petit Larceny with additional charges pending. 

Both subjects were released on their own recognizance to reappear at a later date.
