A tip led Ogdensburg police to a suspect in two burglaries in the city.

Police on Thursday arrested Zachary A. King, 24, of 722 Franklin St., Ogdensburg. Police said he was arrested in connection with Wednesday’s break in at the home of Sean D. Barber, 45, at 422 Pine St. Mr. King was charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree unauthorized use of a vehicle and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

Mr. King allegedly broke into Mr. Barber’s home, stole a Nintendo DSi and a 2002 Jeep Wrangler, according to city court records.

Mr. King was also arrested in connection with Wednesday’s break-in at the residence of James A. Adams, 63, at 721 Elizabeth St. Police said he was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

Mr. King said in his statement to police that he was just holding onto the allegedly stolen goods, valued at $1,500, for someone else after being paid $50.

The goods include a Dura-heat Salamander, power tools and a mini dirt bike.

Mr. King was arraigned in Ogdensburg City Court and sent to St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, where he was held on $3,000 cash bail or $6,000 bond. Mr. King pleaded not guilty in city court and is seeking counsel from the St. Lawrence County Public Defender’s Office. His preliminary hearing is set for Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.
