Sheriff's deputies responded to the Walmart on Bennie Road at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday for a possible trespass in progress.

Officers learned that two people had entered the store who had previously been told by store officials not to enter or remain on their property.

The pair stole items from the store and were arrested shortly thereafter, according to Lt. Todd Caufield with the sheriff's department.

Jarod S. O'Neill, 27, and Heidi A. Sudbrink, 23, both of Turner Hill Road in Marathon, were charged with petit larceny and conspiracy, both misdemeanors.

Officers learned that the pair were wanted on unrelated charges from other police agencies. Sudbrink was wanted on a warrant by the Broome County Sheriff's Department and the Johnson City Police Department, while O'Neill was wanted by the Cortland City Police Department.

O'Neill is being held on $1,000 cash bail and Sudbrink is being held on $2,500 cash bail. Both were due back in Cortlandville Town Court Wednesday.

The sheriff's department declined to disclose the charges from the other agencies.

The investigation is continuing and additional charges are possible, police said.
