Stolen car found in Albany


“We have been fortunate, in this community, that people do come forward and give us information.”


Through this investigation, police said they also learned that the 17-year-old was involved in an unrelated theft in the village on March 18.

“During processing, police were able to determine the youthful offender also allegedly broke into a local business and stole several bottles of liquor,” police reports said.

Besaw and Hough were both charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony, after the arrest at 6 a.m. Monday.

Besaw, who, police said, was behind the wheel, was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

The 17-year-old faces fourth-degree grand larceny, along with two charges related to the alleged liquor theft: felony third-degree burglary and petit larceny.

All three were arraigned early Monday in Saranac Lake Village Court.

Besaw was sent to Essex County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or a $5,000 bond. Nason said Hough was released after a third party posted $200 bail. And the youth was also released on $500 bail.

They all will reappear in court at a later date to answer the charges.
