Bardin indicted

 

A Granville man with a history of trouble with the law relating to drugs has been indicted by a Washington County Grand Jury and now faces a half dozen felony charges tied to a string of burglaries in the early part of the year, officials said.

Mark Bardin Jr., 21, faces three felony burglary and three felony grand larceny charges accused of three burglaries, two in Granville and one in Whitehall, in early March.

Police said on Dublin Road and Middle Granville Road Bardin took $2,800 in coins and jewelry from one location and electronics and jewelry worth more than $3,300 from the second location in Granville.

In Whitehall, Bardin is accused of taking tools worth more than $1,000 from a garage on Rozell Way. The items were all pawned and the money used to buy heroin, officials said. Some of those items were recovered by New York State Police and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Bardin’s girlfriend, Ashley Hayes, 22, of Whitehall was also charged in the burglary cases, accused of helping Bardin to commit the burglaries. Hayes was not named in the indictment because she agreed to cooperate with the Washington County District Attorney’s office against Bardin. Hayes still faces charges in connection with the three burglaries.

Bardin’s father, 55-year-old Mark Bardin Sr., faces a charge relating to the cases, but was also not named in the indictment. Bardin Sr. faces a felony charge for tampering with evidence, accused of destroying a computer stolen by his son. Bardin Sr. still faces that charge.

Bardin Jr. was on parole following a 2009 conviction for forgery when he was accused of committing the burglaries.

Following his counterfeiting conviction for making fake $20 bills on a home computer Bardin was sent to a ‘shock’ incarceration facility for non-violent offenders which allowed him to be paroled early.
