CELORON – Four Jamestown males have been charged by Town of Ellicott Police with larceny following reports of theft from cars Friday in the Village of Celoron.

Charged were Robert G. Gilbert, 17, Gregory R. Skinner, 34, Michael L. Johnson, 21, and a 16-year-old, all from  Jamestown.

Police found the suspects and, after interviewing a witness and several victims, determined the four suspects had removed property from several unlocked vehicles.

The four were arraigned on one count each of petit larceny, sixth-degree conspiracy, and six counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

Johnson and the minor were also charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and remanded to the Chautauqua County Jail.

Police are urging people to keep their vehicles locked.
