Troy Man Accused Of Stealing Twice In One Day
25 year-old Scott T. Cleveland from Troy allegedly stole three children’s hand held computers from a store, got arrested and was charged with Larceny for the theft.
According to a press release from the East Greenbush Police Department, this happened on February 20. After he was set free on his own personal recognizance, he immediately went to the Rensselaer Walmart, and allegedly removed a security device on a $650 dollar tablet computer and walked out of the store without paying for it.
Cleveland was spotted by security cameras, but he left the store before security personnel were unable to reach him. Cleveland was identified by police officers and security personnel that examined the surveillance recordings.
On Friday, Cleveland was brought back into East Greenbush Town Court and arraigned on another Larceny charge. This time, he was sent to Rensselaer County Jail pending the posting of bail.
