Burglary attempt leads to arrest


GUILDERLAN­D — A Rensselaer man is facing felony charges after police say he tried to break into a Guilderlan­d CVS.

Town police say they responded to a burglar alarm at the retail drug chain at 2040 Western Ave. at around 2:22 a.m. When they got there they said they saw a man at the rear of the building, who then fled on foot.

After a brief pursuit, they took the 39-year-old man into custody, according to a news release issued Friday.

He was charged with three felonies: attempted burglary, criminal mischief and tampering with physical evidence. He was also charged with resisting arrest and possession of burglar’s tools, both misdemeano­rs.

The man, who police said was on parole for burglary, was arraigned and jailed.
