Sullivan County, NY – A 36-year-old Long Island man is accused of blowing up mailboxes and shooting out windows of businesses and cars with his two sons over the summer in Sullivan County.
Steven J. Ellison of Bellmore has been charged with first-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony, in connection with at least 30 incidents of property damage.
Ellison was pulled over early Sunday morning at the Waneta Lake Campgrounds between Livingston Manor and Roscoe. Troopers found homemade explosives in his car.
They say he drove around with his sons, ages 12 and 13, and used the devices to blow up mailboxes. The children have not been charged.
