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.

McDonald was arraigned in front of Judge Russell Tompkins in the Town of Clinton Justice Court and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond. He is due back in court on Friday, Feb. 10.
