FELONY ARRESTS

TUPPER LAKE — A Tupper Lake man was arrested Monday for allegedly breaking into a residence and attempting to assault the homeowner, police say.

On March 5, Charles Dukett, 42, allegedly unlawfully entered a residence on Martin Street in the Village of Tupper Lake and was allegedly involved in an altercation with the owner of the home, Tupper Lake Police said.

Dukett allegedly interfered with the homeowner calling police, police said.

Damage was done to the door of the home, police said.

Dukett was arrested at 7:10 p.m. on Monday and was charged with second-degree burglary, a felony; third-degree attempted assault, a misdemeanor, and two counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief, also a misdemeanor.

He was arraigned in Tupper Lake Village Court and was released on $1,500 cash bail, police said.

Dukett will face the charges on April 8 in Village Court, police said.

PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh teen was arrested this week after he was allegedly connected to a stolen check.

Plattsburgh-based State Police charged Keith T. LaBombard, 16, with felony second-degree possession of a forged instrument in connection with a check that was reported stolen from a private safe last month.

LaBombard was released to a third party after his Monday arrest and will appear in court later this month to face the allegations.

No additional information was available on the case Tuesday.

PLATTSBURGH — A Champlain man was arrested March 3 on a probation warrant after he was pulled over by police for allegedly driving while intoxicated.

In the early morning hours of March 3, Plattsburgh City Police were patrolling in the downtown Plattsburgh area, watching pedestrian traffic, said Plattsburgh City Police Capt. Michael Branch.

Officers saw a car driving west on Clinton Street that came to an abrupt stop at the intersection with Oak Street before turning north onto Oak Street, Branch said.

Officers followed and saw the car swerving toward the curb a couple times and correcting back toward the center of the road, he said.

Police pulled over the vehicle on Oak Street just north of Stetson Avenue, Branch said.

Officers could smell the odor of alcohol while they were interviewing the driver, he said.

When his information was entered into their computer, police found Brent Tedford, 22, was wanted on a probation warrant for previous felony charges.

Tedford was arrested and charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated with no priors, a misdemeanor; driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor and unsafe lane change, an infraction.

He was arraigned in City Court and sent to Clinton County Jail. Tedford was released Monday night after posting $500 bail for each charge, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department.

The charges that Tedford was likely on probation for stem from an incident in 2012, Branch said.

On Bailey Avenue, Tedford allegedly physically flipped an officer over.

Tedford later pleaded guilty to third-degree assault and resisting 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.

PLATTSBURGH — Another man has been arrested in connection with September’s alleged flare gun shootings.

State Police arrested Bradley S. Hilborne, 23, of Keeseville in the early morning hours of Feb. 26 on State Route 9 in the Town of Chesterfield.

Hilborne was charged with two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, a felony, and one count of fourth-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor.

He was arraigned and sent to Clinton County Jail that day in lieu of $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond.

Hilborne posted $2,500 cash bail two days later on Feb. 28, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department.

State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation Lt. Brent Davison told the Press-Republican in September that four separate flare shooting incidents happened over three days.

No one was injured.
