Homeowners in three counties are breathing a sigh of relief Sunday morning.
NewsChannel 13 learned police have made an arrest in connection with the rash of home burglaries that have been plaguing residents in Washington, Rensselaer and Bennington Counties.
New York State police arrested Jeremy Joseph Sunday morning. The 38 year-old from North Clarendon, Vermont was charged with burglary in the second degree after four more break-ins Saturday.
Police say they identified Joseph from security footage at one of the home's he broke into yesterday. They believe he's responsible for at least 3 burglaries in Washington County, 3 in Rensselaer County and several more in Vermont.
Police also say Joseph would knock on doors and if no one answered, he’d break in. If they did answer, he’d offer to do tree work or logging.
