LAKE GEORGE - James J. Chapman was released from custody from the Warren County Correctional Facility last week and while in the parking lot, Chapman observed a corrections officer clearing snow off of a personal vehicle. When the officer stepped back inside the building, Chapman attempted to steal the vehicle.
After being confronted by the officer who owned it, Chapman was taken into custody and charged with third-degree attempted grand larceny. He was processed and held in police lockup until arraignment in the Queensbury Town Court and was remanded to the Warren County Correctional Facility for lack of $2,500 cash bail.
This case was investigated by patrol officer Peter Leone and investigator Russ Lail.
