Editor’s note: The initial press release from the Sheriff’s Office contained incorrect and completely contradictory information, according to the Chautauqua County District Attorney.

Patrick Swanson said that both Jacob Ventura and Mark Chamberlain entered pleas of not guilty and their cases are adjourned as dismissal is considered, refuting sentencing information relayed by the sheriff’s office.

Swanson also stated that full restitution was made by Ventura for missing items.
