Port Ewen man arrested following home break-in

TOWN OF ULSTER – A Port Ewen man was arrested following an investigation into a residential burglary at a home on Route 213 in the Town of Ulster hamlet of Eddyville.

Ulster Police arrested Luis Colon, 35, just before 9 p.m. on May 2. When he broke in, he damaged property in the residence.

Police responded to a 911 call of a dispute in progress that was occurring in front of a residence. Investigation determined Colon has gained entry into an unoccupied apartment and was discovered there when the residents returned home, resulting in a tussle between the parties. A passerby heard the ensuing dispute and called 911.

The resident sustained a minor injury during the dispute but did not require medical treatment.

Colon was arrested because he had allegedly removed property from the apartment. He was charged with felony burglary and misdemeanors of criminal mischief and petit larceny as well as a violation of harassment, and to the Ulster County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond pending a future court appearance.
