Police: Previously missing Marion man facing multiple charges after standoff, burglary

MARION, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Marion man who was found last week after disappearing has been charged with multiple felonies, including burglary.

The St.Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday announced Michael Pryce was charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree grand larceny, and third-degree criminal trespass.

Deputies say Pryce committed the burglary at a home in the Town of Madrid, St.Lawrence County before he was later found barricaded with a shotgun at a camp in town. He later turned himself in after a short standoff with the police.

He’d previously been reported as missing back on June 27 in Marion, where he suffered a head injury prior to him being reported missing. Police have not specified how he got hurt.

Pryce was held in the St. Lawrence County Jail on a parole warrant. Department of Corrections records show he was charged with a number of burglary charges in both Monroe and Wayne County, and he was released to parole supervision on April 13

In the most recent case, police say more charges are pending.
