Tips can also be submitted by calling the 24 hour tip line and leaving a message on the voice mail, which is routinely checked. The tip line number is: (518) 746-2522. This is not for emergency situations. If you need to report emergencies, you should call 911.

During the course of the last several weeks there have been 4 burglaries in the southern part of Washington County. The burglaries have occurred in the Towns of Jackson, Greenwich and White Creek. These burglaries have occurred between the hours of 9 am and 7 pm while the home owners were away from home. The suspects have taken cash, jewelry and medications and forced entry into some of the homes.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to warn the residents to be on the lookout for any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods and to report it to the Sheriff’s Office or NYSP. If observed try to get as much information as possible such as clothing description, vehicle description and license plates but do not approach the suspects.

On the left  is an excerpt from a surveillance video taken during one of the burglaries. If you recognize either of the suspects or have any information regarding any of the burglaries, you are asked to please contact Investigator Michael McWhorter at 746-2496 or Sr. Investigator LeClaire at 746-2492.
