GUILDERLAND — A single-family home in the 3300 block of East Lydius Street was burglarized in the the early morning hours of Feb. 8, between 12: 30 and 5:30 a.m., while the residents were at home, according to Deputy Chief Curtis Cox of the Guilderland Police.

Tod Mell’s petite accuser says she never spoke to Mell about the abuse, which she says occurred “30 or 40 times” over the course of her fifth-grade year, in 2010 to 2011, always behind his desk, below the eye level of other students. She also never told school officials, her parents, or friends about it until the spring of 2018.

Donlon had been living in Guilderland’s Carpenter Village Apartments since last April, under his own name and date of birth, until his arrest on Jan. 16.

At his arrest on Jan. 16 at Guilderland’s Carpenter Village Apartments, the court heard, numerous law-enforcement officials with guns drawn pulled Raymond Donlon from his vehicle to the entryway of his building and said they wanted to search his apartment.

Some town residents believe that Guilderland’s boards are too willing to suspend the rules for developers.

Police have not received any reports of Donlon having abused any children in Guilderland.

About 20 residents had gathered at the town hall Monday night for an expected vote by the Industrial Development Agency on the request by Pyramid Management, owner of Crossgates Mall, for two kinds of tax exemptions. The vote was postponed.

One apartment is “uninhabitable,” firefighters say, and residents of three others were being moved to temporary accommodations.

GUILDERLAND —  The Guilderland School District plans to remediate radon in the areas of its high school where recent readings were over state and federal safety levels. The odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas occurs naturally and, in high concentrations over a period of time, can cause lung cancer.
