Man faces more charges

GLOVERSVILLE – City police said a man – already facing charges brought by Johnstown police related to two separate burglaries – was arrested Monday for committing two burglaries at a storage building.

Devin M. Doak, 29, of 19 E. Fulton St., was charged on an arrest warrant with two counts of third-degree burglary, a felony, two counts of petit larceny and two counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief.

Police said Doak committed two burglaries at a storage building at 35 W. Eighth Ave. during the last week of March. Doak forced his way into the building and stole several tools, police said.

Police said officers have recovered most of the stolen tools, which were sold to area businesses that cooperated with the investigation.

Doak was arraigned in City Court and held on $10,000 bail or $20,000 insurance bond.

Police said the investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.

Johnstown police charged Doak on April 6 with second-degree burglary, third-degree burglary and petit larceny.

Johnstown police said he was charged in connection with an incident March 29 for breaking into a storage shed at a North Perry Street residence and stealing a weed cutter and a propane heater.

On April 3, police said, Doak broke into a Frasier Avenue residence and stole a Wii game system and video games, jewelry and coins. Police said some of the items were recovered at a local pawn shop.

Doak also was charged earlier this month by Fulton County sheriff’s deputies with second-degree burglary and petit larceny.

Deputies said he entered a residence in Perth and stole a laptop computer.
