Oswego Police Announce Arrests In Multiple Larceny Investigation

OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego City Police Department has arrested two individuals in connection with the theft of a woman’s purse from inside the Price Chopper grocery store, located at 137 State Route 104 in the city of Oswego.

On Jan. 11, the complainant reported to police that while she was in a check-out lane at Price Chopper, an unknown individual had stolen her purse from her shopping cart while she was not looking.

With assistance from Price Chopper security personnel, police were able to obtain video surveillance footage from which several still photographs were produced. The video footage showed two individuals, one male and one female, exiting a vehicle and entering the store together, then apparently acting together in the theft of the purse.

The two then left the store with the purse and proceeded to leave the area in the same vehicle.

Upon distributing the still photographs to police personnel, patrol officers were able to identify the two individuals based on prior contact with them.

Further investigation, based on that identification, led to the arrest of Drew M. Pelkey, 20,  of 217 E. Eighth St., Oswego, and Karen M. Aubertine, 25, of 217 E. Eighth St., Oswego (lower apartment).

Both were arrested on Jan. 13 at approximately 2:15 p.m., and charged with one count each of Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree (E Felony).

Both were arraigned in Oswego City Court and remanded to the Oswego County Correctional Facility in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bail bond and are due back in Oswego City Court on Jan. 24.

Pelkey has also been charged with four counts of Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument in the Second Degree (D Felony), stemming from four separate incidents in which he is alleged to have uttered forged, stolen personal checks.

Those incidents occurred on Jan. 6 and are not connected with the stolen purse incident.

Oswego Police are asking anyone with information regarding these or other similar incidents to contact them, at 315-342-8120.

Individuals wishing to remain anonymous may also contact the Oswego City Police Department’s tip-line at 315-342-8131, or email crimewatch@oswegony.org
