Police Log: March 14, 2013 — Felony arrest


---- — PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh man was arrested March 3 for violating the terms of his probation, which stems from previous felony charges.

On Dec. 19, 2011, a caller reported to police that the front window of Bizarre Bizaar was broken, said Plattsburgh City Police Capt. Michael Branch.

Officers responded to the store and found a necklace on the sidewalk and when they checked inside they found that various things were missing including clothes, necklaces and a laptop, Branch said.

Gary Woodward Jr., 18, was charged with third-degree burglary; third-degree criminal mischief and third-degree grand larceny, all felonies. He was also charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor.

Police also identified another 17-year-old male who was allegedly involved in the crime. He was deemed a youthful offender and charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and third-degree grand larceny, Branch said.

It appears as though the youthful offender gave some of the stolen property from the stop to Woodward, Branch said.

Woodward was arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court and sent to Clinton County Jail to appear in court at a later date.

Woodward was released March 4 by order of the court, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department.
