Ti residents face charges
A shoplifting complaint led to the arrest of three Ticonderoga residents Sept. 29, according to the Warren County Sheriff’s office.
Just after 5 p.m. Warren County Sheriff's officers were called to Family Shoe Center, 1500 Route 9 in Queensbury, for a shoplifting complaint.
They arrested two people, Ashley E. Fuller, 24, and Courtney R. Rowe, 20, both of Ticonderoga, for the misdemeanor of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
The pair had stolen clothing, shoes and other items from three different stores in Warren and Washington counties, police said.
One of those thefts had been reported to Whitehall Police earlier in the day but the suspects had fled before police arrived.
Fuller was also charged with the misdemeanors of second-degree obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and endangering the welfare of a child. The latter charge stemmed from Fuller actions while caring for her 8-month-old child, police said.
Warren County Child Protective Services responded to provide temporary care for the child while police waited for the child’s father to arrive.
Rowe was released Wednesday after posting $500 cash bail.
Fuller was unable to post bail and was sent to the Warren County Jail to await arraignment. While being searched inside the jail, Fuller became combative and struck a female correction officer in the face and head, police said.
Fuller was subsequently subdued by police and correction staff and charged with a felony count of second-degree assault. The correction officer was transported to the hospital for treatment and released. Fuller was not injured.
She was arraigned and sent to jail for lack of $2,500 cash bail.
Also on Sept. 29, the sheriff’s office arrested Jason M. Cobb, 28, of Ticonderoga for fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property after he was implicated during the investigation into the thefts, police said.
Cobb was released with an appearance ticket.
Crown Point teens charged
Five Crown Point teens are facing criminal charges after an alleged burglary at a local business.
A report was received at about 6:14 a.m. Sept. 25 of a possible break-in at Hap’s Market on Main Street, state police said.
Two 14-year-old boys, a 13-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy, all from Crown Point, were arrested at different times throughout the day and each charged with third-degree burglary for their alleged participation in the break-in.
The four boys were given youthful-offender status and their names were not released. They were each issued an appearance ticket and scheduled to appear in Essex County Family Court at a later date.
Additionally, Cole M. Brooks, 17, of Crown Point was arrested in connection with the alleged burglary and charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor.
Ti men arrested
Three Ticonderoga residents have been arrested in an attempted burglary at a Crown Point business. Police believe they were also involved in several other recent burglaries in the region.
The men were arrested Sept. 28 after state police received a call about a burglary in progress at the Citgo station on Route 9N in Crown Point, police said.
The owner of the business lives nearby and spotted the would-be thieves trying to get in around 11:30 p.m. police said.
They fled, but state troopers arrested two nearby early the following day and the third later that day in Port Henry, according to police.
Devin K. Babcock, 16, and Bernard J. Jordon, 18, were arrested Sept. 29, police said.
Babcock was charged with felony attempted burglary and misdemeanor conspiracy, while Jordon was charged with misdemeanor conspiracy, according to State Police.
Robert W. Remington, 26, was also charged with attempted burglary and conspiracy and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest was added after he ran from troopers who found him at a home in Port Henry later Sept. 29, police said.
All three were turned over to Ticonderoga police for investigation of burglaries in Ticonderoga.
