QUEENSBURY — On May 4 at approximately 10:30 a.m., Warren County Sheriff’s Patrol Officers were dispatched to the Wal-Mart, 891 State Route 9 in the Town of Queensbury for the larceny of a 40” flat screen high definition television. Patrols were advised that an unknown male suspect placed the TV in a cart and attempted to flee the store without payment but was stopped by a Wal-Mart loss prevention employee at the main doors of the store. Once confronted the male fled, leaving the television behind.
A short time later Sheriff’s Patrol Officers spotted a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle that was seen fleeing the scene of Wal-Mart. As officers were preparing to stop the vehicle, the vehicle pulled into a convenience store on Route 9 and both the operator and the occupant quickly exited the vehicle, one of the occupants entered the store and attempted to change his appearance by changing his clothing while in the store. Both subjects were detained. The individual who attempted to change his appearance was later identified as the suspect involved in the larceny. A subsequent check of the vehicle provided additional stolen merchandise.
Persons involved were Trevor B. Barber, 32, of Basher Falls, charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property fifth; and John F. Bovee Jr., 39, of Porters Corners, charged with criminal possession of stolen property fifth, conspiracy sixth and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle third.
Both individuals were arraigned and remanded to the Warren County Correctional for lack of bail.
