ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Two people have been arrested in connection to a burglary in the parking lot of a Rotterdam Price Chopper.
Police arrested Casey L. Buckley, 38, of Schenectady, on Wednesday for robbing an 84-year-old woman. Police say they found the woman’s belongings at Buckley’s home after executing a search warrant.
The elderly woman was mugged at the Altamont Avenue Price Chopper on Monday. She says a car pulled up beside her, and someone got out of the car to push her down and steal her purse.
Police took Buckley into custody without incident. Because of two prior felony convictions, she was remanded without bail.
Buckley’s charges are second-degree robbery, third-degree robbery, and two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny. These felonies could carry prison sentences of up to 30 years if Buckley is convicted.
Police said Jonah Isolda, 32, of Schenectady was driving the vehicle.
He was arrested on Thursday and charged with second-degree robbery, third-degree robbery, and two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny.
Isolda was arraigned and released in Schenectady, then turned over to Colonie police on a different outstanding warrant.
