Police arrest 14-year-old after break-in at liquor store

July 30, 1998

A 14-year-old boy was arrested on burglary and related charges yesterday after police responded to an alarm at a New Windsor liquor store, authorities said.

The boy, who was not named because of his age, was turned over to juvenile authorities on charges of first- and second-degree burglary, theft, malicious destruction and resisting arrest, state police said.

Alerted by an alarm company, troopers went to a liquor store in the 100 block of Church St. at 2: 18 a.m. A neighbor told police a suspect was inside the business. The boy was apprehended as he tried to dive through a second-story window, police said.

Police said the suspect's knapsack, found in the store, contained $200 worth of cigarettes, liquor, beer and other items.
