Two arrested in local burglary cases

A Whitehall woman and a Granville man have been jailed relating to several recent local break-ins, Washington County officials said Tuesday.

Ashley Hayes, 22, faces three felony burglary charges relating to as many break-ins in Granville and Whitehall following a joint investigation between the State Police and the Washington County Sheriffs office, Washington County District Attorney Kevin Kortright said.

Hayes was accused of entering a garage of an acquaintance on Rozell Way in the Town of Whitehall March 10 and taking a Makita gas powered concrete saw and a portable Salamander-style heater, the sheriff’s office said. Police charged Hayes with one count of third-degree burglary in the Whitehall case.

Hayes also faces two counts of felony burglary in two separate break-ins in Granville, officials said.

Hayes faces two count of the class ‘C’ felony second-degree burglary for residential break-ins on Dublin Road and Middle Granville Road, Kortright said.

Arrested in connection to the Hayes burglaries was Mark N. Bardin, 21. Bardin was charged with the class ‘A’ misdemeanor of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property following his arrest Friday, according to the State Police public information website.

With the arrest Bardin violated his parole for a counterfeiting conviction and has been sent to jail, Kortright said.

Hayes was arraigned in Granville Town Court in front of Judge Roger Forando and sent to the Washington County Jail for lack of $25,000 cash or $50,000 bail bond. Kortright said further serious charges are likely in the case.
