Local men arrested in Queensbury break in

T wo from Granville in gun break in

Three local men have been arrested in connection with a burglary that allegedly took place in Queensbury in July when several guns were taken.

New York State Police on Feb. 10 identified the suspects allegedly responsible for the July 27 smash-and-grab burglary at John’s Outdoor Sports just over the Washington County border on Dix Road in Warren County.

Joshua Brown, 22, of Route 22 and Shawn Mahar, 21, of DeKalb Road were charged, along with Gary N. Moore Jr., 22, of Whitehall with a single count each of felony third-degree burglary.

The group stole a number of guns, including handguns from the store, by smashing the front window, police said. Those weapons were traded for drugs in Hartford, Conn., police said.

Brown and Moore admitted to having a hand in other burglaries, according to police, who said state police in Washington County are continuing to investigate the case. Granville police said the two men from Granville had arrest records, but none was drug or burglary-related.

Brown, Mahar and Moore were arraigned in Queensbury Town Court and sent to Warren County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.
