Albany man heading to prison for burglaries, including one committed while out on bail for earlier thefts

ALBANY – An Albany man pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary in the second degree, a felony, in Albany County Supreme Court Friday morning.

Between August 20 and September 14, 2013, Devon Dobbs, 21, broke into a residence on Bradford Street in the City of Albany and stole cash, electronics and other personal information from the victim.  Additionally, on August 19, 2013, the defendant broke into a residence on Watervliet Avenue in the City of Albany and stole 2 computers along with jewelry. 

Also, on September 23, 2013, the defendant broke into a residence on West Street in the City of Albany and stole assorted jewelry, identification papers, a suitcase and a computer.  The defendant was caught by police attempting to pawn the computer less than 24 hours after the burglary. Pursuant to a search warrant, officers recovered stolen property from several previous burglaries that were attributed to this defendant. 

Following his arrest, the defendant posted 10,000 cash bail.  While out on bail, on October 15, and 21, 2013 at two residences in Albany, the defendant and an accomplice stole jewelry, cash, and a computer and was observed by officers pawning the stolen property following the burglaries.

Dobbs faces up to 12 ½ years in State Prison, to be followed by 5 years of Post Release Supervision, when sentenced on May 3, 2014.

“This is one of the most brazen burglars in recent memory. After committing several burglaries for which he was arrested and posted bail, he was at it again. Mr. Dobbs was a victim of great police work, arrogance and karma,” commented District Attorney P. David Soares.
