The Ticonderoga Rite Aid pharmacy was the victim of an armed robber Nov. 8. A male suspect entered the store at about 6:11 p.m., and handed an employee a note demanding prescription pain medication, according to Ticonderoga police.
Tobia J. Secone, 90 of Ticonderoga was pronounced dead July 15 following a motor vehicle accident.
Ticonderoga Police Chief Mark Johns stated that Secone, operating a 2012 Toyota Highlanger entered the roadway from Harris Point Way where his vehicle collided with a tractor trailer truck traveling east on Route 74.
Secone was pronounced dead on the scene by Essex County Medical Examiner, Walter Marvin.
Secone’s wife Margaret A. Secone 81, was a passenger in the vehicle, and sustained major injuries- a life light helicopter landed on Putts Pond Road approximately 3 miles from the scene of the accident and transported Margaret to Fletcher Allen Hospital in Burlington.
“Margaret’s injuries were a contusion to the head and abrasions to a shin and a shoulder,” Johns said. “She was listed in stable condition yesterday afternoon.”
The tractor trailer was a Seaway Timber Company vehicle being operated by Chad E. Fleury, 36 of Malone. Fleury was uninjured in the crash.
Route 74 remained closed to traffic between Schroon and Ticonderoga for 5 hours while the Ticonderoda Police Dept. assisted by New York State troopers investigated the scene.
“The investigation remains open,” said Johns. “No cause is being released at this time.”
