On April 2, Benson allegedly approached the female and an uninvolved male and pushed the male while they were in the 99 Restaurant in Plattsburgh, Cragle said.

Subsequent investigation found Bibeau to be in possession of a gold chain necklace with a diamond pendant that was missing from a Beekmantown address, Huber said.

The necklace is valued at about $1,400, he said.

The owner of the 1996 Chevrolet pickup truck reported the vehicle missing to State Police in the summer of 2012, Cragle said.

Police investigation led them to Rock and he was arrested at the Clinton County Jail where he was incarcerated on previous burglary charges, Cragle said.

PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh man was arrested March 12 on robbery and other charges.

Marlon G. Dupee, 18, was allegedly illegally in a car located on Route 9 in the Town of Plattsburgh and when he was confronted by the owners of the vehicle, he pushed them down and ran away with stolen property, Plattsburgh-based State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation Investigator Larry Cragle said.

The owners originally saw Dupee in their car from their house, Cragle said.

The property included some prescription medication, iPod headphones, a pack of cigarettes and sunglasses, he said.

Troopers found Dupee at his residence, the Sundance Motel, which Dupee had allegedly run to following the robbery, Cragle said.

He tried to flee out of the bathroom window and actively resisted the troopers when they were arresting him, Cragle said.

Dupee was charged with third-degree robbery, a felony; resisting arrest, a misdemeanor; seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor; and disorderly conduct, a violation.

He was arraigned in Peru Town Court and was sent to Clinton County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.

CHESTERFIELD — A Keeseville man was charged Jan. 16 with possession of stolen property.

On Oct. 8, 2012, Keith A. McCray, 23, had allegedly sold some copper and plumbing fittings to a scrap yard in Keeseville, Plattsburgh-based State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation Investigator Larry Cragle said.

The employee working at the scrap yard was suspicious, Cragle said, and contacted State Police on Oct. 18, 2012, according to a State Police blotter entry.

Trooper Marc Felio interviewed the employee and determined that McCray had sold the materials, he said.

In a later interview, McCray told Felio he had permission to sell the materials because he was an employee of the person who owns them, Cragle said.

After the owner of the company returned from Florida and did an inventory, it was determined that the materials were missing and that McCray was not authorized to sell them, he said.

McCray was arrested at the Rip Van Winkle motel on Jan. 16 and was charged with third-degree criminal possession of stolen property valued at more than $3,000, a felony.

He was sent to Essex County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
