Middleburgh man arrested twice in less than 12 hours

State Police arrested a Middleburgh man twice in less than 12 hours.

They were responding to a welfare check for four children in James Wood’s care, when they allegedly found a gun inside the home not stored safely.

While being interviewed by police later, Wood acted belligerently and damaged a vehicle that didn’t belong to him.

Wood was arraigned in the Cobleskill Town Court and released on his own recognizance.

He was arrested again 11 hours later for violating a stay-away order issued by the court during his arraignment.

Wood was again arraigned at the Cobleskill Town Court, but this time was remanded to Schoharie County Jail.
