Poughkeepsie man charged in series of Dutchess burglaries
A multiagency probe into a recent series of home burglaries in western Dutchess County has produced three felony charges in three jurisdictions against a City of Poughkeepsie man, officials said.
Kyle Bosch, 27, appeared in LaGrange Town Court on Thursday after being charged Tuesday by State Police with second-degree burglary, a court official said Thursday.
Bosch also has been charged by the Dutchess County Sheriff's Department with second-degree burglary in the Town of Pleasant Valley, and Town of Poughkeepsie police have charged him with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, an official at Dutchess County Jail said Thursday.
Bosch's LaGrange case tentatively was adjourned to March 5, pending a possible preliminary hearing earlier. He'll appear in Pleasant Valley Town Court on Monday and Poughkeepsie Town Court on Tuesday.
Bosch remains in Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond.
State Police are leading the investigation and are being assisted by the Dutchess County Sheriff's Department, Hyde Park police and Town of Poughkeepsie police.
In a related case, Katrina Kern, 32, of Pleasant Valley, was charged Tuesday by State Police with misdemeanor fifth-degree possession of stolen property in a Town of Poughkeepsie case. Kern was released on her own recognizance for a later appearance in Town of Poughkeepsie Court.
State Police said that although the charges leveled against Bosch and Kern focus on separate incidents, the two know each other. No particular types of items were being targeted in the burglaries, they said.
Marco Caviglia, Bosch's attorney, declined to comment on the case Thursday.
A woman who answered the phone at Kern's residence Thursday identified herself as Kern's mother and said Kern was not available for comment. She declined to take a message for Kern.
The investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to call the State Police criminal investigations unit at 845-677-7379.
