A Blasdell man is accused of breaking into hundreds of vehicles in Lackawanna and neighboring jurisdictions.

Brandan Broadbent was arrested on April 25.  He’s charged with Grand Larceny and possessing stolen property. Investigators say all of the vehicles that were entered were unlocked at the time.

Police believe Broadbent co-conspired with two other men, including a man named Gregory Victor. 

Victor has not been charged.

Police are urging vehicle owners to keep their doors locked.
