Troy-Trio arrested for alleged burglary in broad daylight

BRUNSWICK, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Brunswick Troopers say they arrested three Troy men after they committed a daytime Burglary in the Town of Brunswick.

Troopers say they received a 911 call from a neighbor who saw two men enter a home through a window as the third suspect waited in a car outside. The alert neighbor was able to provide a description of the vehicle and suspects, who left the area prior to Troopers arriving at the residence.

The vehicle and suspects were then located a short time later by a Trooper in the City of Troy. The three men, 20-year-old Mack Murray III, 16-year-old Joshua Whitehead and 18-year-old Michael Gaunay all of Troy, were interviewed and subsequently taken into custody. All three suspects admitted to being involved in the Burglary, and missing items were located in the vehicle.

The three Troy men were arrested and charged with Burglary in the 2nd Degree, a Felony.

Additionally, Murray was charged with a second count of Burglary in the 2nd Degree, related to a February 2015 break-in on North Lake Avenue in the Town of Brunswick, and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.

Gaunay, Murray and Whitehead were also charged with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 5th and Possession of Burglar Tools, both Misdemeanors in the City of Troy.

The Troy Trio was arraigned in the Town of Brunswick Court and was remanded to Rensselaer County Jail in lieu of bail.  They are scheduled to appear in court at a later date and the investigation is on-going.
