Pair arrested in connection with Cornell frat house burglarly

Ithaca Police have arrested two people in connection with a burglary at a Cornell fraternity house.

Paul Elsner, 35, of Elmira, and Nichole Lederman, 28, of Lansing, were stealing valuables at a Cornell frat house Sunday evening when one of the apartment’s residents walked in on them.

The suspects fled the scene, but officers found them by coincidence the following evening.

During a domestic dispute on the city’s west end Monday evening, officers noted the similarities between the suspects and the vehicle from the burglary reported the previous day.

The two were arrested and found to be in possession of items stolen during Sunday’s burglary.

Elsner and Lederman remain in Tompkins County Jail.
