MASSENA -- Village police charged three teens and a 20-year-old on Monday with breaking into a Nightengale Avenue residence earlier that day, stealing various items including a .32-caliber handgun, and selling it.

Although police have only released a few details, a statement from Village Police Lt. Mark E. LaBrake says the quartet was arrested after an investigation led to a search warrant executed at Dusty Huckle’s apartment at 351 East Orvis St., Apt. 15, where the stolen handgun was allegedly recovered.

Huckle, 20, is charged with one count each of third-degree criminal sale of a firearm, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

Huckle could face up to seven years in prison if convicted.

Also charged were:

• Caleb J. Mossow, 16, of 9 North Clarkson Ave., with one count each of second-degree burglary and petit larceny.

• Sawyer E. White, 16, of 41 Somerset Ave., with one count each of second-degree burglary, third-degree criminal sale of a firearm, fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and petit larceny.

• Jesse K. Jordan, 16, of 351 East Orvis St. Apt. A, with one count each of second-degree burglary, third-degree criminal sale of a firearm, fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and petit larceny.

The teens could be spared time behind bars if a judge grants them youthful offender status. The burglary charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years’ prison time.

All four are awaiting arraignment.
