An 18-year-old Brewster man is facing a felony charge of criminal mischief after he broke a pair of glass panels at an apartment building on Main Street, officials say.
Officer Wayne Peiffer of the Brewster Police Department arrested Adonis Salazar-Gonzales at about 12:20 a.m. March 2.
While on patrol that night, Peiffer noticed several individuals running down Main Street, toward Marvin Avenue, according to Chief John DelGardo. He was able to stop them and learned that the defendant—who was being chased—allegedly knocked on one of the doors at the apartment building and attempted to enter. The resident denied Salazar-Gonzales and asked him to leave.
A few minutes later, Salazar-Gonzales, who appeared intoxicated, returned, DelGardo said. He is accused of throwing a glass beer bottle through two glass panels adjacent to one of the doors in the building and then taking off on foot. The residents chased after him.
Damage is estimated at about $300. Police charged the defendant with third-degree criminal mischief, a felony. He was arraigned before Village Justice Richard O'Rourke and sent to the Putnam County Correctional Facility, pending a future court appearance, on $1,000 cash or $2,000 bond bail.
