CLIFTON PARK & HALFMOON — Two Halfmoon residents were arrested on a number of felony crimes after a traffic stop Thursday, the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department said.
Coleen R. Riley and Donald R. Brundige Jr., who share the same Squire Lane address, both had active warrants for petty larceny and were suspects in more serious forgery and theft cases in the area, deputies said.
They are each accused of possessing a forged check on Jan. 4 and cashing it in Clifton Park. Riley is also accused of a May 17 burglary at a neighbor’s property in which she allegedly entered a garage and took credit/debit cards that were later used at a business in Halfmoon.
Riley faces charges including third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, and petty larceny. She was arraigned before Saratoga Springs City Court Judge Jeffrey Wait and jailed in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond, deputies said.
Brundige is accused of cashing a forged $1,300 check in Clifton Park in April, and possessing stolen credit cards when arrested. He charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, and petty larceny. He was jailed in lieu of $40,000 cash bail or $80,000 bond.
