After break-in at V’ville mart
Troopers arrest two Albany men they believe made many burglaries

VOORHEESVILLE — State police arrested two Albany men early in the morning on May 15 after they broke into the Main Street Mobil station, taking $3,200 worth of cigarettes.

Jeffrey G. Williams, 50, of Third Street, and Terrence D. Anderson, 35, of Lindeburgh Avenue were charged with third-degree burglary, a felony, and remanded to Albany county’s jail without bail.

Troopers caught up with the pair on Route 85 in Slingerlands.

“For the past five months, law enforcement in Schoharie, Schenectady, Albany, Greene, Columbia, and Saratoga Counties have been investigating early morning burglaries to convenient stores,” according to a release from the State Police, announcing the arrest of Anderson and Williams.  “The perpetrators would enter the building after throwing a brick or cinder block through a glass window or door, steal thousand of dollars worth of cigarettes, and leave the area in a matter of minutes. Responding law enforcement were often moments behind the perpetrators who struck between the hours of 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.”

Police expect to make further arrests.
