SAUGERTIES – A Saugerties man, who was arrested twice on grand larceny charges, was released on appearance tickets each time as they were non-qualifying arraignable offenses under the state’s bail reform laws.
On August 19, Jonathan Wilson, 37, was captured on surveillance video stealing a 2000 Jaguar parked in front of Smiths Hardware store on Main Street. He was arrested on August 30 on the felony charge and released on an appearance ticket.
He was arrested again following an incident shortly after 4 p.m. on September 8 where he allegedly jumped the customer service counter at the Price Chopper store in Saugerties and removed money from the cash register.
He was charged again with felony grand larceny and released on an appearance ticket returnable to Village of Saugerties Justice Court.
