Mount Kisco man charged with burglary accused of breaking into residence


HAWTHORNE – Westchester County Police arrested a Mount Kisco man on burglary and other charges Sunday after he allegedly broke into a residence on Maple Avenue.

Police received a call shortly before 11:30 a.m. reporting a burglary was in progress at 68 Maple Avenue. A third party reported that a resident had just confronted an intruder in his apartment.

Police Officers Scott Forsythe, Brian Tierney and Bryan Yatsko responded, located the intruder inside the apartment and took him into custody. The suspect was found in possession of multiple items of stolen property.

Jevon Odum, 27, who has lived at various addresses in Mount Kisco, was charged with burglary, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, all as felonies; and possession of burglar’s tools, a misdemeanor. 

He was held overnight at County Police headquarters in Hawthorne and was arraigned Monday in Mount Kisco Justice Court, where he was released on his own recognizance.

Officers recovered several pieces of jewelry, multiple credit and debit cards in other people’s names, $619 in cash, $60 in coins in a bag, a screwdriver and a pocket knife. Not all of the recovered items are from the Maple Avenue residence. Detectives from the General Investigations Unit are continuing to investigate and additional charges are possible.
