Three men in Onondaga County, N.Y. have been charged after an eight-month investigation by state police into a burglary at Northern Motorsports in Volney.

Brandon C. Hughes, 26, of Syracuse, was charged June 12 with grand larceny and attempted grand larceny, both felonies, and possession of burglary tools, a misdemeanor.

Charles R. Bliss Jr., 30, of Brewerton, was charged Feb. 9 with grand larceny and attempted grand larceny, both felonies. He is being held without bail in Oswego County Jail, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard.

Joseph A. Douglas, 18, of North Syracuse, was charged Dec. 20 with criminal possession of stolen property, a felony.

Troopers in Fulton interrupted a larceny in progress last June 12 at Northern Motorsports, which led to Hughes’ arrest, troopers said. Hughes and Bliss broke through a secure area at the business while it was closed and removed an ATV and two off-road motorcycles during several trips to the building, troopers told the newspaper.

The investigation resulted in the recovery of thousands of dollars worth of stolen property from businesses in Oswego and Onondaga counties, troopers said.
