A Hilton man is facing charges after police say he stole jewelry from a home in Wyoming County.

Matthew T. Adams, 21, of Hilton, is charged with grand larceny. State Police say he stole several thousand dollars in jewelry while he was a guest at a home in Pike.

Police say Adams brought the jewelry to Rochester where he pawned and sold it.

Adams had an outstanding warrant from the Wyoming County Sheriff's Department for criminal impersonation which stemmed from incident where he was interviewed and gave a false name to sheriff's deputies.

Adams was arrested on Tuesday in Rochester and was arraigned in the Town of Pike Court. He was sent to the Wyoming County Jail on $15,000 bail.
