Two people are charged in a Colonie robbery investigation.

William Jersey Jr., 31, of Schenectady and Scarlett O'Dell, 26, of Clifton Park were arrested.


Police say the pair is responsible for robbing Northway Mobil on Troy-Schenectady Road and trying to rob GameStop on Loudon Road Wednesday.

They say O'Dell was tied to the Colonie investigation during a separate stolen car investigation in Halfmoon, and Jersey was found in the getaway car – allegedly with crack cocaine.

Police say a crowbar and clothes used in both robberies were recovered.

Jersey was out on bail for allegedly robbing the same Mobil station last year.
