Addie Jenne Pickup Truck Linked To Burglary SuspectPosted: Updated:
A truck owned by state assembly representative Addie Jenne is linked to a suspect in a burglary last week in Antwerp.
State police charged Nathan McElhone, 43, 111 Main St., Antwerp, with burglary early Saturday morning after they found items taken from a garage on Route 11 inside a truck parked in front of McElhone's home, according to state police.
According to police documents, McElhone stole copper piping and other miscellaneous copper items valued at $1,500.
A spokesman for assemblywoman Jenne told 7 News Wednesday morning the truck belongs to Jenne. He provided the following statement from Jenne:
"A close friend of mine was arrested early morning in the town of Antwerp. The allegations are very serious, and his case is now before the courts. I have no further comment about the charges as his case moves through the legal process."
Jenne's spokesman declined to answer additional questions about whether Jenne had loaned McElhone the truck, and what she understood he intended to use it for.
State police said they were forced to taser McElhone to subdue him. He was charged with third-degree burglary, fourth-degree grand larceny, resisting arrest, and second-degree harassment.
He was arraigned in Pamelia town court and taken to Jefferson County jail.
