Man again accused of stealing cars


A Rome man previously charged with stealing a car from a repair shop on West Dominick Street a month ago has now been charged again after law enforcement officials said he was found with another stolen vehicle this week.

Police said Roberto Carvalho, 24, of 425 W. Court St., was found with a stolen 2011 Jeep Liberty parked at his residence at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police said the Jeep has been reported stolen from the Cycle Shack on Erie Boulevard.

Carvalho is charged with one count of fourth-degree possession of stolen property, police said.

The investigation is continuing and more charges are possible, authorities stated.

According to Rome Police, Carvalho was previously charged on May 30 with fourth-degree grand larceny after a different stolen vehicle was found in his driveway.

Police said that vehicle had been stolen from Eastup Automotive Repair on West Dominick Street.

After he was taken into custody on Tuesday, police said Carvalho was turned over to the state police, who then charged him with one count of second-degree burglary for an ongoing investigation in Boonville, authorities stated.
