On October 15, 2019 at about 1:00pm Troopers from SP Auburn were dispatched to the Community Bank on West Main Street in the Village of Cato for a reported bank robbery.  Preliminary investigation revealed that a male subject had entered the bank, presented a written note stating that he had a gun, and demanded a sum of money.  The subject then fled the scene on foot.  During the response to this incident, patrols located a suspicious vehicle parked along Veley Rd in the Town of Ira.  About the same time of locating this vehicle, Troopers received a report of a Burglary to a residence on Veley Rd, with a subject leaving the area of the burglary on a bicycle.  The subject was then located by Troopers near the suspicious vehicle, pushing a bike.  The subject was identified as Jason A. Ingelston, age 41, from Red Creek, NY.  After further investigation, Ingelston was taken into custody and later charged with Attempted Robbery 1st Degree (C-Felony) and Burglary in the 2nd Degree (C-Felony).  Ingelston is currently being processed at SP Auburn and will be arraigned on these charges.  Deputies with the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office assisted Troopers during this investigation.
