Alleged meth maker now charged in 5 burglaries

A man from Allegany County arrested last year in a meth lab bust has now been charged with burglarizing five different homes and businesses, stealing money, guns and other items.

Bradley Hollenbeck, 35, of Andover was charged following a three-year investigation by State Police into multiple burglaries and thefts. And troopers say he may face even more charges in the future.

Right now, troopers say Hollenbeck is responsible for:

  • May 2013 – vehicle damaged in Town of Andover; Hollenbeck charged with third degree criminal mischief
  • May 2013 – business burglarized in Village of Andover; Hollenbeck charged with third degree burglary
  • June 2014 – home burglarized in Town of Alma, guns and ammo taken; Hollenbeck charged with second degree burglary and third degree criminal possession of a weapon
  • December 2014 – business burglarized in Town of Scio, money taken and building damaged; Hollenbeck charged with third degree burglary and third degree criminal mischief
  • December 2014 – theft at business in Town of Alfred, guns taken; Hollenbeck charged with two counts each of fourth degree grand larceny and third degree criminal possession of a weapon
  • December 2014 – home burglarized in Town of Ward, several items taken; Hollenbeck charged with second degree burglary

Hollenbeck came to the media’s attention last March, when he and his girlfriend were involved in an accident on I-390 in Livingston County. He and his girlfriend were allegedly fighting before the rollover crash.

Just days later, Hollenbeck and his girlfriend were in the news when they were indicted on federal charges of making meth in Wellsville.

Then just hours later, State Police charged Hollenbeck with third degree burglary for allegedly breaking into The Old Mill, a bar in the Town of Alfred. Troopers say they found the stolen cash after the crash Hollenbeck was in.

He’s currently being held without bail in the Allegany County Jail.
