At 7:30 in the morning on April 20, 2024, Monroe County Sheriff's deputies responded to a residence on Gage Gardens in the Town of Chili for the report of a burglary. An individual unlawfully entered the victim's vehicle and used the remote garage door opener to access the garage. Fortunately, the sound of the garage door opener alerted the family, who made noise to scare off the suspect as he was trying to open the door into the kitchen. During the investigation, deputies were called to another residence on Gage Gardens regarding a similar incident. The suspect unlawfully entered a vehicle and used the remote garage door opener found inside to access the garage. On this occasion, the suspect was frightened away by the presence of two dogs inside the garage prior to entering.

MCSO investigators have concluded the individual responsible for these incidents is Ryan Christman.

Ryan J. Christman, 32 of Henrietta is charged with:

  • Burglary in the Second Degree (Class C-Felony)
  • Attempted Burglary in the Second Degree (Class D-Felony)
  • Petit Larceny (Class A-Misdemeanor - 4 Counts)

Following his arraignment in Chili Town Court, Christman was ordered to be held in the Monroe County Jail, with bail set at $50,000 in cash, $200,000 in secured bond, and $400,000 in partially secured bond.

It should be noted, Christman was arrested on April 11, 2024, for carrying out the same pattern of burglaries in Henrietta. (news release) He was arraigned and released on his own recognizance in accordance with NYS law. This pending litigation allowed the Chili Town Court to hold Christman under the harm for harm amendment to the NYS bail reform laws.
