Ti man arrested

A Ticonderoga man has been charged with stealing a car.

Andrew L. Sharrow, 23, was taken into custody Aug. 22 and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, according to Ticonderoga police.

Sharrow is accused of stealing a 1995 Chevy Camaro, which was reported to police at about 3:30 a.m. that morning.

The car was later located in a field just over the Putnam town line, in neighboring Washington County, police said.

After an investigation, Sharrow was arrested, arraigned in Ticonderoga Town Court and sent to Essex County Jail with bail set at $1,500 cash or $3,000 bond.

Schroon man charged

Police say a Schroon man attacked another with a piece of lumber Aug. 26.

State police were notified about the alleged assault after the apparent victim showed up at a local barracks at about 9 p.m. and reported the violent altercation.

Authorities now believe the men were involved in an argument when Jason J. Thatcher picked up the piece of wood and struck the other man.

Thatcher, 42, is charged with second-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Thatcher was released from custody after posting bail and is due back in court next month to face the allegations.
