COUNTY COURT WARRANT - MASSENA - Village police picked up Timothy A. Hollenbeck, 47, of 123 County Route 46, Massena, on a county court warrant at 1:11 p.m. Wednesday at the St. Lawrence County Probation Department satellite office. He allegedly violated the terms of his probation.
Village police had charged Hollenbeck with first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree menacing and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon in June 2011.
Village police said they received their initial complaint at 1:30 a.m. that a number of intoxicated men were attempting to get into George Guy Sloan's apartment at 556 South Main St., a residence owned by Edwin Pelkey. They received a second complaint from a different individual moments later that men were arguing, one of the men had a shotgun and three shots had been fired.
Massena Village Police Sgt. Patrick Serguson said four men were outside the residence arguing when police first arrived on the scene. Village police were assisted by U.S. Border Patrol and Massena-based state police.
Sgt. Serguson said the investigation revealed Hollenbeck had fired three rounds from a shotgun during a dispute with Brent W. Pelkey, 21; James C. Rust Jr., 28; and William M. Servin, 29. Police located the shotgun inside the residence with two shells still in the chamber.
CRIMINAL MISCHIEF - MASSENA - Village police charged Curtis P. Debien, 17, of 46 Park St., Massena, with fourth-degree criminal mischief and trespassing Wednesday afternoon. The charge stemmed from an incident Monday morning when Debien cut a screen and entered the apartment of his cousin, Darlina Dishaw, on Brighton Street.
Ms. Dishaw said when she woke up at 7:30 a.m. she saw Debien at her bedroom door. She said Debien initially called the detox unit at Canton-Potsdam Hospital and tried to set up an appointment. "Curtis started telling me needed money, which he always does. Curtis threatened me that he will sell all the stuff in my house. I told Curtis I was not giving him any. Curtis got angry and threatened to break up everything I have," she noted in her statement to police.
