Man arrested for burglary

A Broadway man was arrested last Wednesday for allegedly burglarizing a village apartment.

Richard E. Farrell Jr., 37, was charged with third-degree burglary, a felony and petit larceny, a misdemeanor following an investigation by Whitehall police.

Farrell was seen by police at approximately midnight on Aug. 13 walking on a public street carrying a number of household items. Police determined he had entered an unoccupied apartment and taken the items.

The resident of the apartment was contacted and told police that Farrell did not have permission to enter the residence or to remove any items from within.

Farrell was arraigned in village court and released to appear at a later date.

The investigation and arrest were handled by Patrolman Jeffrey Grenier.
