2 Women Arrested After Chase Ends In Crash
In a press release from the East Greenbush Police Department, early on Monday morning, the two women allegedly fought with a store manager, and allegedly left the store with about $400 dollars of merchandise, including two Keurig Coffee Machines, and a blue ray home theater system. The manager called police when he saw the two women leave the store’s parking lot in a vehicle with Vermont plates.
The East Greenbush Police saw the car and attempted to pull it over on the Patroon Island Bridge on I-90, but the women sped off. The chase continued to 787, and the Rensselaer Police were called in to assist with the chase. The chase continued until the car crashed in Troy.
That’s when 38-year-old Melissa A. Norris of Bristol, Vermont and 22-year-old Jamie L. Conant of Hampton, New York were taken into custody. Norris and Conant have both been charged with Robbery In The Third Degree, Larceny, Conspiracy and other possible charges. After they were arraigned in East Greenbush Town Court, they were sent to Rensselaer County Jail, where they will wait until they go back to court.
