The Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office has apprehended Rahkeal J. Jones, 21, of Syracuse and a juvenile accomplice, following a larceny at Dick’s Sporting Goods in Aurelius.
The two were seen leaving the store with shopping carts filled with merchandise valued at over $4,000.
Sheriff Brian Schenck noted that deputies were already in proximity, addressing a separate incident, which enabled the prompt arrest.
While Jones awaits a CAP Arraignment at Cayuga County Jail and has been remanded without bail, the juvenile received an appearance ticket and was handed over to a third party.
The Sheriff’s Office urges anyone with additional insights into the incident to contact Detective Josh Blanchard at 315-253-3902. Tips can also be anonymously submitted via the Cayuga County website.
