ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A family dog alerted a homeowner’s son to a burglary in Rotterdam.
The 16-year-old told police he woke up to find Geoffrey Gravell, 32, in the kitchen.
Gravell is the mother’s ex-boyfriend and hadn’t been seen or heard from in more than two years. Police say he got into the home by breaking a back door window and unlocking the door.
He was arrested and is facing a felony burglary charge.
