Three charged after Chautauqua County home invasion

SHERMAN – Three Erie, Pa., residents were charged Tuesday following an alleged home invasion Sunday in Chautauqua County.

Two men and a woman are accused of entering a home on Cornish Street in Sherman shortly after 6:30 a.m., the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

A male, female and child were inside at the time. They were “attacked,” according to a sheriff’s office statement, and were not allowed to leave, and a cell phone was stolen from the home.

The male called 911 when the suspects allowed him to take the child into another room. The suspects fled the scene but were arrested without incident on Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said.

Authorities charged Nicholas A. Tobin, 32; June E. Hoovler, 37; and Jamie L. Markham, 35. They were each charged with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree conspiracy, unlawful imprisonment, petit larceny and endangering the welfare of a child.

Tobin was also charged with first-degree criminal contempt and second-degree assault. Hoovler was also charged with second-degree assault.

All three were sent to the Chautauqua County Jail following arraignment.
