Police: Schenectady County woman robbed CVS in Delmar, fled from officers

A 39-year-old Schenectady County woman is facing charges for allegedly robbing a CVS in Delmar and refusing to stop for police.

Betsy M. Jablonski, of Delanson, is accused of forcibly stealing a vehicle from the drug store at 260 Delaware Ave. on Oct. 25. Bethlehem Police officers responded to the store for a report of a theft in progress, which escalated into a robbery.

Police located the vehicle and attempted to stop it. Jablonski refused to stop for officers from the Bethlehem Police Department, New York State Police, and Albany County Sheriff’s Department, police said.

She eventually stopped in the area of Exit 24 of the Thruway and she and her passenger ran from the vehicle.

Jablonski was located in a wooded area and arrested. She was taken to Albany Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. Police did not find the passenger.

Jablonski was charged with felony counts of robbery, grand larceny, conspiracy, unlawfully fleeing a police officer, petit larceny, reckless driving, aggravated unlicensed operation and other traffic violations.

She was arraigned and sent to the Albany County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail.

Jablonski also had six active warrants at the time of arrest, police said.
