DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - A Dutchess County man was arrested following a lengthy investigation into a home burglary that dates back to last year, police announced on Wednesday.
State police from the Poughkeepsie barracks arrested former Staatsburg resident Matthew McDonald, 27, on Tuesday, charging him with a felony count of second-degree burglary.
According to police, on Nov. 10 last year, troopers were dispatched to a home on the Salt Point Turnpike in Clinton for a reported burglary. During the subsequent investigation, police said they determined that McDonald had illegally entered the home and stole jewelry from the homeowner.
