Both burglaries happened February 17. First, an alarm went off at Poestenkill Town Hall around 7:45 p.m. When Rensselaer County Sheriff's Deputies got there, they found a broken door window pane but nothing was missing.
Later, the "Sand Lake Clipper" beauty parlor was robbed. Deputies say a cash register and money bag were stolen. The suspect gained entry by prying and breaking a window lock to gain entry into the shop, authorities said.
Authorities have urged residents to keep an eye on their neighborhoods and to call police if they see anything suspicious. Anyone with information regarding these two burglaries is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Tip line at 266-1981.
