Arrests made in church burglary

| November 13, 2011

The Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office arrested two Auburn men accused of breaking into an Owasco church and stealing two gold ciboria this past August.

David Calkins, 21, of 82 Havens Ave., and Daniel Edersheim, 20, of 54 Adams Ave., were both charged with third-degree felony burglary after a resident called detectives with a tip pertaining to the case. Calkins, who was arrested Thursday, was also charged with fourth-degree felony criminal possession of stolen property and Edersheim, who was arrested Wednesday, was also charged with misdemeanor petit larceny.

Calkins and Edersheim allegedly broke into Sacred Heart Church in Owasco on Aug. 31 and stole two ciboria, deputies said.

Calkins allegedly possessed both ciboria when he was arrested, deputies said. One ciborium was undamaged, but the second was damaged beyond repair, police said.

Sheriff’s Detective Timothy Axton said that the men may have planned to sell the items for scrap, but that neither are real gold and do not have a significant market value.
