Police Log: Jan. 31, 2013 — Felony arrest

PLATTSBURGH — A Dannemora man was arrested Jan. 7 on felony forgery charges.

On Jan. 3, a man told State Police money was missing from his bank account.

The man also told police his cousin had taken an unsigned $400 check made out to cash from his residence.

On Jan. 7, Jacob C. Ball, 18, was arrested and charged with second-degree possession of a forged instrument, a felony, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor.

Ball was arraigned in Plattsburgh Town Court and sent to Clinton County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond, police said.

The next day, charges of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony, and fifth-degree possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor, relating to an incident reported Oct. 9, 2012, were logged in a State Police blotter entry for Ball.

Back in October 2012, Ball was arrested after a long State Police investigation into a report they received the morning of Nov. 13, 2010.

It is alleged that Ball caused about $1,200 worth of damage to a parked pickup truck in Peru, police said.

He was charged Oct. 21, 2012, with third-degree criminal mischief, a felony, and released on an appearance ticket for a Nov. 1, 2012, court date, police said.
