Fallsburg man sentenced to prison for home burglary



MONTICELLO – A 30-year-old Fallsburg man was sentenced on Friday
in Sullivan County Court to 13 years in state prison, to be followed by
five years of post-release supervision on his conviction for two counts
of burglary and one count of criminal possession of a weapon, all as felonies.

Albert Quick, also known as “Skeet,” was sentenced based on
convictions resulting from a joint investigation into a series of burglaries
in Sullivan County between January and March 2017.

During those heists, he primarily stole jewelry, but on occasion a loaded
pistol from one home from a victim who lawfully possessed it. The stolen
gun was recovered by police.

Quick has previously been convicted of burglary in 2008, for which he
was ultimately sentenced to a term of 1 1/3 to four years in prison, suspended
by his participation in a drug treatment program operated by the Department
of Corrections and Community Supervision.

The sentence was imposed following Quick’s termination from drug
court for his failure to comply with the terms of his participation in
the program.

While he was on parole for that conviction, he was convicted of burglary
in 2012, and sentenced to 3 ½ years in prison, to be followed by
five years of post-release supervision. He had been released to parole
supervision on that conviction in November 2016, shortly before he was
again identified as a suspect in connection with this investigation in
early 2017.
