There are some more charges for the Vermont man accused of stealing catalytic converters.

State police say Jake Hodgdon is now also charged with grand larceny, criminal mischief, trespass, and auto stripping.


These new charges stem from thefts from Upstate Auto Sales in Pittstown.

NewsChannel 13 showed you surveillance video from the business nearly two weeks ago.

We reported last week Hodgdon is also charged with thefts from other businesses.

He was arraigned and sent to the Rensselaer County Jail.
