PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Windsor husband and wife charged with warehousing items allegedly stolen by their adult sons have been freed on personal recognizance after pleading not guilty.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that 62-year old James Tarjick Sr. and 60-year-old Nancy Tarjick were arraigned Tuesday in Berkshire Superior Court on seven counts each of receiving stolen property valued over $250.
Police allege the Tarjick’s sons broke into dozens of homes between August 2010 and June 2012 and stole items that were later found in the family’s home. One of their sons is already in prison on a child rape conviction.

About 40 allegedly stolen items were found at the parents’ home.
The Tarjicks’ lawyer says their home was a “dumping ground,” and they had no idea the items were stolen.
