Mr. Durham, Mr. Ransom and Mr. Schroeder were each additionally charged with third-degree burglary (a class D felony) and fifth-degree conspiracy (a class A misdemeanor), for their alleged participation in the incident.
The men were each arraigned before the Hon. Michael Clark, Town of Hastings Court, and remanded to the Oswego County Correctional Facility; Mr. Schroeder and Mr. Durham in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bail bond.
Mr. Ransom and Mr. LeBeau were remanded in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bail bond.
They are all scheduled to return to court on Oct. 9.
