  • Burglary of a dwelling while armed (Two counts)
  • Grand theft – statutory property (Two counts)
  • Dealing in stolen property (Three counts)
  • Burglary of a dwelling (Two counts)
  • Grand theft more than $300 and less than $20,000
  • Falsification of ownership of pawn broker

Dunham is scheduled to be extradited to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office on the west coast of Florida, just north of Tampa. He’s been residing in Tompkins County for about five years.
