Queensbury man arrested after theft of military clothing, equipment
QUEENSBURY, N.Y. – Sheriff Officers have arrested a 27-year-old man they say stole military issued clothing and equipment from the New York National Guard's Queensbury Readiness Center.
The Warren County Sheriff's Office began an investigation into the theft of the items, after National Guard members had been at the facility for training purposes and found that several soldiers' lockers had been broken into and the contents stolen.
Some of the stolen property was located at a vendor's table at the Saratoga City Gun Show that was held on January 12. Those items were secured by members of the Saratoga Springs Police Department.
According to police, none of the stolen items consisted of firearms, ammunition, or body armor, and the vendor in possession of the stolen equipment was not aware that the property had been stolen from the National Guard and cooperated with the police investigation.
On Tuesday, Michael TP DeBlois, 27, of 59 Massachusetts Avenue in the Town of Queensbury was arrested for the class D felony of Grand larceny in the 3rd-Degree.
DeBlois was found to have been stealing items from the National Guard Center while he worked at the building as a cleaner. The thefts occurred between October 2012 and January 2013. DeBlois worked for a company that was contracted by New York State to provide cleaning services to State owned facilities.
He was arraigned in Queensbury Town Court and remanded to the Warren County Correctional Facility for lack of $20,000 cash bail. He is scheduled to re-appear in Queensbury Town Court later this month.
