Two teens charged with breaking into home, cars in North Greenbush


NORTH GREENBUSH, N.Y. - The North Greenbush Police Department has arrested two Vanderheyden Hall teenagers for allegedly breaking into a home for sale on Sharpe Road on Monday afternoon.

Police say they were called to the home around 3 p.m. when a resident returned to the home to find the teens, ages 14 and 15-years-old, inside. The teens then jumped from a second floor window after being confronted by the homeowner and started running in the nearby woods where the homeowner chased one of them.

Police Chief Robert Durivage says prior to the break in the teens also went into open vehicles and rifled through mailboxes along Sharpe Road.

A State Police helicopter, as well as K-9 officers from State Police and the Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office assisted North Greenbush Police in the search for the teens. They were apprehended a short time later and discovered missing from Vanderheyden Hall Facility in North Greenbush.

They were charged with Burglary, Criminal Mischief, and Petit Larceny and to reappear in Rensselaer County Family Court at a later date.
