SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — An Amsterdam man has been arrested in connection to a robbery that occurred at the Ben and Jerry’s in Saratoga Springs, according to police. Daniel McKay II, 40, faces multiple charges.
On September 3, officers responded to 34 Phila Street for a report of a robbery. Police say McKay allegedly told a store employee that he was robbing the store, and implied he had a gun, but no weapon was displayed.
McKay then reportedly took a quantity of cash from the register and left the store. No one was injured during the incident.
Following an investigation at the scene, police responded to a report of a robbery at the Malta Stewart’s. Shortly thereafter, an officer was able to locate McKay on Route 9, who matched the description of the suspect from both robberies, and he was taken into custody.
McKay was charged with two counts of first-degree robbery. He was arraigned in the Malta Town Court and was remanded to the Saratoga County Jail in lieu of bail or bond pending further action.
