Franklin man accused of vandalizing car in New York
FRANKLIN — A local man was extradited to a New York jail last week to face charges of felony criminal mischief for allegedly vandalizing the car and home of his former college’s president last Halloween.
Jason S. Colby, 20, of 28 Charles St. was arrested in Franklin on Oct. 2 and held without bail in the Merrimack County jail until Wednesday, when New York state police officers transported him to Cayuga County (N.Y.) jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
Colby is charged with two counts of criminal mischief in the third degree, each count of which is punishable by up to four years in jail under New York law.
Cayuga County Sheriff Lt. Joseph Weeks said Colby is the second and final suspect in the case, in which two men used bright orange paint to spray their nicknames and “vulgarities” on the car and home of Lisa Ryerson, president of Wells College in Aurora, N.Y., at about 3 a.m. on Oct. 30, 2011.
Previously arrested for the crime was Edward C. Abrego, 20, of Aurora, N.Y. Police said Abrego and Colby, both students at Wells College last year but not this year, are the only suspects and the investigation is closed. Abrego was also charged with two counts of criminal mischief in the third degree.
Police said the men spray painted their nicknames — “Sensa” and “Lil Buddah” — on Ryerson’s home and car.
“There was also some other words, some profanity toward (Ryerson),” Weeks said.
Colby is to be arraigned on the charges in a New York court Tuesday.
Franklin police said Colby was not known to have committed crimes there.
When arrested, Colby acknowledged being at the college last year but denied any involvement in the crimes, Franklin police said in an arrest affidavit.
