7 Snow Blowers...20 Warrants...and a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

The Schenectady PD is all too familiar with a man arrested recently and accused of stealing as many as seven snowblowers from Home Depot and Lowes during a month-long spree.

According to a report from News 10 ABC, police say that 35-year-old Bryan Pallone did his dirty work over a one-month period of time beginning on November 12th and it lasted until December 12th.

Police allege that Pallone stole his first batch of blowers back on November 12th.  On that date, a Home Depot store in Clifton Park reported that they were missing 5 of their snowblowers, and then one month later, he struck again.

This time police say he took two more snowblowers from a Lowes, also in Clifton Park.  When he was arrested, Schenectady Police say that he had 20 warrants out for his arrest.

This latest episode was clearly not Pallone's first run-in with the law, and some of the allegations against him stemming from an incident over the summer are quite disturbing.

In a story published by the Daily Gazette in August, police in Schenectady say he "poured gasoline and threatened his wife while also violating an order of protection earlier this month."

According to the August report, Pallone was accused of "pouring gasoline on her clothes at the residence he shared with his wife" and telling her, “I’m going to blow this place up and kill you."

When police tried to apprehend him over the summer, they say he barricaded himself in a bathroom and then tried to escape through the ceiling.

According to News 10 ABC, Pallone is currently being held at the Schenectady County Correctional Facility as a result of other charges.
