On October 22, 2015, Mark F. Spietz was arrested for burglary, theft, and identity theft for entering the property of Jennifer and Thomas Ayers (deceased) and taking numerous items that belonged to the family.
In March of 2015, this location was the scene of a double homicide. The home and the property in the home are all part of a probate case that is currently ongoing in Oneida County. This case is sealed as there are minor children involved who are victims of a crime.
Sheriff Grady Hartman wants the community to know his agency is being diligent in attempting to protect the property for these children. Currently, all of the stolen property has been recovered and in the custody of the Sheriff’s office. It should be noted that the property is currently being monitored by the Sheriff’s Office and anyone found on the property will be arrested for trespassing. Spietz will appear in Oneida County Court on October 26, 2015 in Branch II at 1:30 p.m.
