Men Sell Stolen Xbox, Spend Proceeds On Heroin

HARMONY – Two men have been remanded to Chautauqua County Jail after police said they sold stolen property to purchase heroin.

State Police at the Jamestown barracks charged James Hall, 22, of Harmony, and Scott McChesney, 23, of Panama, after responding Sunday to a report of a burglary. According to a police report, a complainant located Hall inside her residence without permission. The woman, whose name was not released, drove Hall home because he did not have a ride, police said.

Police said McChesney then allegedly entered the woman’s home and removed an Xbox, two Xbox games and a CD. The woman returned home to find her residence burglarized.

Hall and McChesney allegedly sold the stolen Xbox at Gamerz Haven on Foote Avenue in Jamestown for $71, and spent the proceeds on heroin, police said.

Troopers located Hall in Jamestown and charged him with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree conspiracy, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, second-degree criminal trespass and violation of probation.

McChesney was taken into custody at his residence and charged with second-degree burglary and fourth-degree conspiracy.

Both suspects were processed at police barracks and arraigned in Harmony Court. They were remanded to County Jail.
