FELONY ARRESTS

AuSABLE — Police believe a Cadyville man forged a vehicle title earlier this year.

Plattsburgh-based State Police arrested Michael Greeno Tuesday on a charge of second-degree forgery in connection with the April signing.

Greeno, 55, is now being held at Clinton County Jail without bail and will reappear in court later this week to face the allegations.

CHAMPLAIN — A Florida man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly tried to cross the local border with a loaded firearm.

Chazy-based State Police were called to the Champlain Port of Entry at about 11:30 a.m. after John V. Poissant was reportedly found in possession of a loaded .38-caliber handgun.

Poissant was arrested for second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and taken to Clinton County Jail, pending further court action.

ALTONA — An Altona man was jailed Tuesday night after he allegedly harassed someone who has an order of protection against him.

Chazy-based State Police said they arrested Mark L. Smith about an hour after the 7 p.m. harassment was reported.

Smith is also suspected of violating a court order when he contacted the unidentified woman.

Smith, 42, is now facing charges of first-degree criminal contempt and second-degree harassment.

He was later arraigned and sent to Clinton County Jail on $1,000 cash bail, which he had not posted as of midday Wednesday.

Personal-injury accident

A Constable man was injured Wednesday when his motorcycle collided with a car on Route 37.

Malone-based State Police said Timothy Hawk, 48, was southbound on his motorcycle around 5 p.m. when a another vehicle, driven by 81-year-old Leslie Osborn of Fort Covington, approached from the opposite direction and attempted to make a left turn onto Route 8.

She turned into Hawk's path, his motorcycle colliding with the car.

Hawk was transported to Alice Hyde Medical Center and later transferred to Fletcher Allen Health Care in stable condition. He had not yet arrived at the Burlington hospital when the Press-Republican called for a condition update Wednesday night.

Osborn was cited for failing to yield the right of way to Hawk's motorcycle.
