Pair accused of stealing from Malta convenience store
MALTA Two men allegedly distracted a convenience store clerk to steal $3,763 at the end of January.
Donald J. Koenig, 42, of Gansevoort, and Mitchell D. Walker, 50, of Burnt Hills, were arrested by the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office after a reported grand larceny at the Getty Mart on Route 9 in Malta on Jan. 23. Police allege Walker distracted the store clerk so Koenig could steal an envelope containing cash.
Both men are charged with third-degree grand larceny. Koenig was arrested Jan. 30, but Walker wasn't arrested until Thursday. Both are due in Malta Town Court at a later date.
