Plymouth Residents Can Sleep Better After Accused Con Man Placed Behind Bars
PLYMOUTH — A man has been arrested for trying to con his way into apartments near Plymouth State College.
Jarrod Ryan, 40, of Bethlehem, is charged with three counts of attempted burglary, two counts of loitering and prowling and criminal trespass.
The arrest came after the Plymouth Police Department sent out a video Wednesday of an unidentified man trying to enter off-campus apartments by asking to check fire alarms in the buildings.
On Wednesday afternoon, police were called to an apartment on Russell Street after Ryan, who matched the description of the man in the video, attempted to enter an apartment there.
Ryan had tried to get into the apartment Monday night as well, police said.
Police identified Ryan after one of the apartment residents gave them a license plate number of the Escalade Ryan had been driving.
Police called Ryan, who drove to the police department and confessed to both incidents, they said.
He refused bail and was taken to the Grafton County Jail. He's scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at Grafton County Superior Court.
