BRUNSWICK, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The New York State Police arrested Christopher Williams, 32, of Troy, and Alyssa Rogers, 32, of Troy, after they say they burglarized a home in Brunswick. Police say they were able to catch the pair after the vehicle they were using became stuck on the victim’s property.

Troopers say they responded to a report from a homeowner that someone had broken in and taken $11,000 worth of items from their home. Troopers were able to arrest Williams and Rogers after their vehicle became stuck under electrical lines that are on the victim’s property.
