STOCKHOLM, N.Y. (WWNY) - Four St. Lawrence County residents were arrested after they allegedly made up a burglary.

State police say they were called to a home on Buckton Road in the town of Stockholm for a burglary in progress early Thursday morning.

People in the home told police a man had entered the home, damaged property, and, following a struggle, fled through a bedroom window to a wooded area in back.

32-year-old Justin French, 32, of Stockholm, was charged with second degree criminal contempt due to violating a stay-away order of protection by having contact with one of the parties involved. He was arraigned in Morristown town court and sent to St. Lawrence County jail on $2,500 bail or $5,000 bond.

Janice Brothers, 27, of Brasher, was charged with third-degree falsely reporting an incident and first-degree making a false written statement.

Michelle French, 50, of Stockholm, was charged with first-degree making a false written statement.

Frederick Jandreau Jr., 28, of Stockholm, was also charged with first-degree making a false written statement.

Brothers, Michelle French, and Jandreau were released to appear in Stockholm town court at later dates.
