Two Northumberland Avenue men are being held on burglary and other charges for allegedly stealing a furnace from a vacant Lark Street home and trying to steal a hot water tank from an occupied Dutton Avenue home.
Derrin J. McAdory, 30, and Allan J. Wingard, 35, were arrested by Officers Tina Ferraro and Valerie Shropshire about 11:40 p.m. Wednesday on Northumberland shortly after the Dutton Avenue homeowner confronted them and forced them to drop the water tank in the driveway.
Both men are charged with second-degree burglary and attempted grand larceny for the Dutton Avenue incident. They also are charged with criminal mischief for allegedly breaking into the cellar of the Dutton Avenue home and removing parts of its furnace.
McAdory is charged with third-degree burglary, fourth-degree grand larceny and criminal mischief in the theft Monday evening of the furnace from the Lark Street home and for breaking the lock on a side door to get into the cellar.
