Queensbury woman arrested after 'car shopping'


QUEENSBURY, NY - Megan J. Bates, 22, of Aviation Road, Queensbury, was arrested today for Burglary 3rd degree, Petit Larceny and Unlawful Possession of Marihuana.

Trooper James West was assigned a complaint earlier in the morning of an unknown subject rummaging through unlocked cars on Robin Lane in Queensbury and stealing a bicycle from the shed at one of the residences. While following up on neighborhood interviews, he observed an orange BMX bicycle, which matched the description of the stolen bicycle. It was behind a shed adjacent to a mobile home at the Mountain View trailer park.

Further investigation led SP Queensbury BCI to arrest Bates for the burglary and car larceny after she admitted to walking around the neighborhood, near dawn, "car shopping."

She was also charged with Unlawful Possession of Marihuana, at the time of her arrest.

She was arraigned on the charges at Queensbury Town Court and is scheduled to reappear on Monday March 31, at 10:30 a.m.
