WEST SENECA, N.Y. (WIVB) - A West Seneca man faces multiple charges after he was caught leaving a woman's home he just broke into Friday evening.
A woman returned to her West Seneca home shortly before 6:30 p.m. where she found a man whom she recognized climbing out of her bedroom window. She identified the man, Joseph J. Morgante, 27, as someone who had done work for her in the past.
Several items were missing from the torn apart room including a bag of change.
The man then came to the back door asking if he could come into the house. The woman shut the door and called police.
It wasn't long after officials were notified that the situation was being handled. Morgante was found to be in possession of the woman's missing items. He was apprehended identifying himself as some else to police because he did not have any form of identification on him.
Morgante was charged with burglary, criminal possession of stolen property, criminal possession of controlled substance, petit larceny, and false impersonation.
He was arraigned in Town of West Seneca Court and taken to the ECHC on $2500.00 bail.
