JAMESTOWN – A Chautauqua County Grand Jury has handed down an eight-count indictment against a Jamestown man for his alleged involvement in a south side home invasion that took place in November.
Jamestown Police say 25 year-old Felix Lozada has been charged with second-degree burglary; burglary displaying a firearm; two counts of second-degree robbery – aided by another; two counts of second-degree robbery displaying a firearm; and two counts of second-degree menacing with a firearm.
Lozada was taken into custody in December and is currently being held in the Chautauqua County Jail on $200,000 cash bail.
Police say Lozada allegedly went to a home at 555 S. Main St. with another suspect at about 12:40 a.m. Nov. 22, claiming they needed help with their vehicle. Once the homeowner opened the door, the men forced their way into the home at gun point and tied up the occupants before robbing them of money and property. The victims sustained only minor injuries and did not require hospitalization.
A blue Chrysler Pacifica was located in connection to the invasion in a lot off of Lakeview Avenue in the following days. The vehicle was impounded at the Jamestown Police Department.
Police say the second suspect, who’s name has not been released, is currently being held in Warren County on unrelated charges. They say charges are also pending against the subject.
