A 22-year-old Byron man is facing five additional felony charges for allegedly breaking into homes in Stafford and Bergen.
Jeffrey Leaton of Caswell Road is accused of entering five homes without permission and stealing jewelry and cash. Two of the homes are located on Griswold Road in Stafford and the other three homes are located on West Bergen Road, Hunter Street and Peachey Road in Bergen.
Leaton was arraigned on all five counts and released on his own recognizance. He has been held at the Genesee County Jail on $20,000 bail since Feb. 12 when he was allegedly caught in the act of committing a residential burglary on Griswold Road in LeRoy by sheriff’s deputies.
Leaton is scheduled to appear in Stafford Town Court Feb. 26 and to re-appear in Bergen Town Court March 13.
