Whitehall Police make arrests


Whitehall police have charged a local woman with fourth-degree grand larceny, first-degree falsifying business records and theft of services after she allegedly used her child’s name to open a National Grid account.

Two of the charges against Melissa A. Smith, 34, are felonies. Police said her bill with National Grid was for $1,200.

Police said she was arrested after National Grid staff members found out that a child’s information had been used to open the account.

Whitehall police charged a local woman with felony driving while intoxicated and following too closely following a motor vehicle accident on Broadway Friday.

Donna A. Wood, 49, received the felony charge because she had a prior DWI conviction and her blood alcohol content was .26 at the time of her arrest.

Police said Wood’s Mercedes Benz hit the back of a Chevrolet Malibu on Broadway.

She was arraigned in Hudson Falls Village Court and sent to the Washington Count Correctional Facility.

A local man has been arrested after police said he pointed a loaded rifle at a sibling.

Jacob M. Ballard, 20, was charged with second-degree menacing, a misdemeanor. State police arrested him Feb. 23.

Whitehall Town Judge Julie Eagan sent Ballard to Washington County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
