Three men accused of making heavy haul from Collins scrapyard

State police arrested three men at a Collins scrapyard as they loaded 38 used brake drums used on commercial vehicles onto a pickup about 4 a.m. Sunday.

Francis G. Chaplin, 32, and Joseph C. Mooney, 31, both of Buffalo, are in Erie County Holding Center pending court proceedings on charges of felony grand larceny and third-degree criminal trespass. Shaun I. Ellison, 31, of Forestville is charged with petit larceny and criminal trespass, and received an appearance ticket for Collins Town Court.
