ARREST WARRANT - MASSENA - Massena-based state police picked up Joshua A. Reedy, 23, of 110 Maple St., Apt. B, Monday afternoon on an arrest warrant dating back to 2010 charging him with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
Reedy allegedly sold two video games to Game Stop at the St. Lawrence Centre mall in July 2010. The games had been reported stolen by his stepfather, Matthew A. Martin.
He was arraigned on the warrant by Massena Town Justice Gerald P. Sharlow and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $1,000 cash or $2,000 bond.
Reedy was also arraigned on a bench warrant signed by Massena Town Justice James M. Crandall in August 2010 alleging the Massena man had violated the conditions of his probationary sentence for a forcible touching conviction in Oneida County. His probationary supervision had been transferred to St. Lawrence County.
Reedy had been charged with forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child following a brief investigation into an incident in January 2010 when he traveled to Oneida County and spent three days with a 14-year-old female he had been involved with in an online relationship for a period of time. He was 19 at the time. Police alleged he had sexual contact with the minor when he was visiting Oneida County.
He had been sentenced to three years of probation in March 2010 after pleading guilty to the forcible touching count. Probation officials, in a memorandum to the court, had alleged Reedy violated that sentence by committing a new offense - the stolen property charge - and by leaving the state without the permission of the probation department. He reportedly moved to Ohio. He was incarcerated at one time at a correctional facility in Ohio after he left Massena.
