An Ithaca man has been arrested in connection with two armed home invasions that happened Tuesday night.

32-year-old Whitley Taylor was arraigned in Lansing Town Court on two counts of robbery and two counts of burglary, both felonies.

The first incident happened at a home on Livermore Road in Dryden at around 10 p.m.

An hour and a half later, sheriff’s deputies responded to a similar home invasion on Lockerby Hill Road in Lansing.

The victims once again said two suspects with handguns, who were dressed in all black, took money from that home as well. Investigators say the two incidents are linked.

The second male suspect involved has not been identified.
