The man who broke into the student village dorms in December has robbed three other apartments, in which several Binghamton University students reside. The morning after the SUNY Broome break-in, he invaded and stole miscellaneous items from the apartments. The man has now been identified as 31-year-old Joshua Howe, an unhoused Binghamton local. Howe had been charged with two misdemeanor counts: Criminal Trespass 2nd degree and Criminal Mischief 4th degree. He accepted a plea agreement that states he must seek treatment at St. Joseph Recovery Adult Addiction Treatment Center. If Howe is successful with this program, he will serve a felony probation after rehab. However, if he doesn’t complete it, he could receive a prison sentence of up to seven years. His next court appearance is scheduled for July 29, 2022 in Broome County Court.
