Tables turned on B&E suspects

Three Long Island residents have been charged in the break-in of a Mulberry Road residence in the Nathalie community, according to Sheriff Stanley Noblin.

Robert Adam Buchanan, 25, his 25-year-old wife, Marie Bell Buchanan, and his 44-year-old mother, Barbara Ann Epperson, all of 2106 Buffalo Road, are facing multiple charges related to the break-in of the Mulberry Road house belonging to Mark Boothe of Madison Heights, Noblin said.

The house previously had been broken into twice, and when Boothe’s brother and sister-in-law went to check on the house late Friday afternoon, they found Robert Buchanan and Barbara Epperson running from the inside of the house out the back door, the sheriff said.
