Derrick Sedore Caleb Pilkenton On February 28, 2018, the Wayne County 911 Center dispatched uniform patrols to a report of an unoccupied suspicious vehicle parked on Viele Road in Wayne County. New York State Troopers and Wayne County Sheriff Deputies located the vehicle in question parked in the roadway, unattended, with the ignition on. Upon checking the area, patrols observed two suspects fleeing from a residence on Craine Road in the Town of Sterling (Cayuga County) with proceeds of an apparent burglary. Both suspects, Derrick J. Sedore, age 31 of Utica, NY, and Caleb A. Pilkenton, age 26 of Auburn, NY, fled on foot into a wooded area. Arriving patrols established a perimeter which resulted in both suspects being taken into custody without incident. Subsequent investigation revealed a homeowner, who was inside the residence at the time of the incident, was bound and assaulted by the suspects. The New York State Police out of Auburn charged both suspects with Burglary 1st, a class B felony, Robbery 2nd, a class C felony, Criminal Possession of a Weapon 4th, a class A misdemeanor, and Unlawful Imprisonment 2nd, a class A misdemeanor. Sedore and Pilkenton were arraigned in the town of Owasco Court and remanded to the Cayuga County Jail without bail. More charges are pending as the investigation is continuing.
