BATAVIA — A Genesee County grand jury has indicted an Oakfield man who went on a wild crime spree in Genesee, Orleans and Monroe counties.
The charges are part of a slew of indictments filed during the last two weeks of July, the first indictments since COVID-19 shut down courts in March.
One of those is a case against Judd A. Farewell, 28, of Oakfield, who has been arrested numerous times this year.
The indictment, however, is for a single instance: Farewell is accused of entering 66 Lake St. in Le Roy on Jan. 17.
Farewell is charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and two counts of petit larceny. He allegedly damaged copper piping and a valve on a boiler system and stole an Xbox, controller and 15 games.
Farewell still has numerous charges still pending in Monroe, Genesee and Orleans counties for a series of other crimes this year.
In June, he and his girlfriend, Samantha Wroblewski, 31, admitted stealing from numerous cars throughout Monroe County after their first arrest on June 10.
Monroe County sheriff’s deputies said they were sent to a Pittsford location for a report of a woman who had passed out in a car.
Farewell, who lied to deputies about his name, and Wroblewski were found inside the car along with stolen credit cards, needles, baggies and other items stolen from cars.
They were charged with criminal possession of stolen property and released.
Three days later, Farewell was stopped at Walmart in Henrietta and found with needles and stolen credit cards, deputies said.
In all, Farewell was charged in Monroe with six counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, one count of misdemeanor fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, two counts of criminal impersonation and multiple traffic violations.
Wroblewski was charged with one count each of fourth-and-fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
Farewell was turned over to Genesee County, where he was wanted for third-degree burglary, third-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree grand larceny, felony criminal mischief and petit larceny.
He also was charged with stealing a car from an Oakfield residence and faces felony grand larceny charges in Shelby, Orleans County.
And on Monday, Farewell was arrested again. He was charged with criminal mischief for damaging a toilet in Genesee County Jail.
