Another arrest in flare-gun shootings


Police also received a call from workers at Fuller Construction after they noticed flare damage to a lighted sign on Military Turnpike near Salmon River Road.

Cory M. Burdo, 21, of the Town of Plattsburgh, was arrested Sept. 5 in connection with the flare-gun shootings, charged with first-degree reckless endangerment and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

He was arraigned in Plattsburgh Town Court and sent to Clinton County Jail without bail, Sypek said.

Burdo was initially charged with four counts of first-degree reckless endangerment and five counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief. He was also charged with petit larceny, a misdemeanor, for allegedly stealing the flare gun used in the shootings from Wal-Mart in Plattsburgh.

Burdo was arraigned in Peru Town Court and sent to Clinton County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bail bond.

He remained in Clinton County Jail Tuesday.

Burdo’s sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 26 in Clinton County Supreme Court.
