Teenage burglars found with backpack of beer


SAUGERTIES, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Thursday morning, around 8 a.m., officers with the Saugerties Police Department responded to a report of a burglary in progress at 24 Clermont Street in the Village of Saugerties. Upon arrival, officers noticed a broken window on the corner of the building, and found two people inside, who they arrested.

The subjects were taken back to Saugerties Police Headquarters for processing. Police say they also recovered a backpack with various cans of beer and hard seltzer, and bottles of liquor inside. The booze, police say, was traced back to The Stable, located in the Cantine Veteran’s Sports Complex.
