JOHNSTOWN - A local teen has been charged by city police with nine counts related to several burglaries committed in the last three years.

Police said Krysta M. Kenney, 18, of 216 E. Main St., was charged at 3 p.m. Monday in connection with incidents from Feb. 19, 2010, to Aug. 29 of this year.

Police said she was charged with four counts of second-degree burglary, three counts of petit larceny, one count of fourth-degree grand larceny and one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

Kenney was charged in connection with a recent criminal trespass at a residence on Fon Clair Street, when officers responded to a call of a person climbing into a house through a window, police said. The same residence had been burglarized in late May.

Police said physical evidence found at the residence in May and two other homes on South Melcher and West Montgomery streets - along with identification of the suspect from a witness through a photo array - led investigators to Kenney. She turned herself into police Monday, and officers said she cooperated fully with the investigation, providing information on a fourth burglary in February 2010 on West Main Street that had been unsolved.

Investigators were able to recover most of the stolen property from Kenney's residence and another location in the city.

She was arraigned in City Court and sent to the Fulton County Jail pending further court action.
