Auburn (WSYR-TV) – The Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two men they say are responsible for a series of burglaries in the town of Sempronius.

All of the thefts occurred in the month of August.
The two men were charged with three counts of burglary in the third degree, a felony. Sheriff’s Deputies say more arrests may be forthcoming.
Durkee was arraigned in Town of Brutus Court and taken to the Cayuga County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.
