Man jailed on pair of disorderly conduct charges

BOONVILLE — A 23-year-old man is facing multiple charges for two separate disorderly incidents in the village, including throwing a rock at a passing car.

Police said Robert J. Burke, of 1192 Kerber Road, hurled the rock at the driver’s side of a passing car as it drove through a parking lot off Railroad Avenue at about 8:20 p.m. Jan. 9. Police said Burke was upset because the car had driven past him several times, so he threw the rock.

The car sustained damage to its driver’s side door and side mirror. Burke was taken into custody at his home later that night on a charge of fourth-degree mischief, police stated.

The second incident occurred on Nov. 21, when police said Burke was found with a stolen 30-caliber rifle. Burke refused to tell police how he got the firearm, but authorities said he purchased it from another person for $100 after it was stolen out of a motor vehicle on Charles Street.

Burke was charged with fourth-degree possession of stolen property, police said. He was arraigned on both charges and was sent to county jail on $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond.
