On Wednesday, Garrow interviewed Crandall regarding the Lake Placid incident at the Ray Brook State Police barracks, where he confessed to the crime in full detail and provided police with a written statement, Garrow said.
He lead State Police to the blow torch and crow bar that had been used in both burglaries, Garrow said.
Crandall was arrested just before 10 a.m. that day at the barracks and was charged with second-degree criminal mischief and fourth-degree grand larceny of property valued at more than $1,000, both felonies.
He was arraigned at the Town of North Elba Court and released under the supervision of a probation officer.
Crandall is scheduled to reappear in court at 6 p.m. Dec. 10.
Police are still searching for Lugo, who was living with Crandall at a residence in Canton, Garrow said.
The Canton Police Department did not return calls from the Press-Republican.
