An Endicott man was arrested twice in seven days for separate trespassing incidents in Cortland and Tioga Counties.
The first occurred last Tuesday (February 4) in the town of Willet.
State police responded to a suspicious person report at a residence on Webb Road, where the complainant told them a man wearing nothing but black plastic garbage bags had entered their home unlawfully before fleeing the area.
Troopers located an abandoned vehicle in a ditch nearby on Webb Road, where a search began that ultimately led them to discover 23-year-old Christian Wilson, who was hiding behind a residence in a wooded area on State Route 41.
Further investigation revealed that Wilson had crashed the vehicle in the ditch, which investigators soon found to be reported stolen from Broome County.
They brought him back to the State Police barracks in Homer, where he was evaluated by EMT’s, then transported to Cortland County Central Arraignment and Processing, later released on his own recognizance.
But not for long.
Exactly a week later (February 11), Wilson was arrested for a similar incident in Tioga County, where he reportedly broke into another home on Coryell Road in the town of Nichols.
A witness at the scene until officers arrived and took him into custody.
Upon entering the unlocked residence, investigators say Wilson didn’t take anything, but rather took off his shoes, baseball cap and poncho before being confronted and detained by a witness until police arrived.
Wilson was arrested, processed and released once again on an appearance ticket to the town of Nichols court on February 20.
