WHITEHALL — Police say they arrested two people in Whitehall, New York last week.

April L. Campeau, 44, of Whitehall, NY, and Joseph R. Fortin, 36, of Whitehall, NY, were arrested for burglary, criminal possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance, and criminally using drug paraphernalia.

On January 20, at about 9:45 a.m. troopers responded to a business on County Route 9 in Whitehall, reporting a burglary that had just occurred.

Campeau and Fortin were located walking on State Route 4 in possession of property stolen from the business.

Police say that Campeau and Fortin were responsible for the burglary.

In addition, the suspects were in possession of other stolen property and drugs.

The stolen property located during this arrest resolved three incidents of theft that occurred in Vermont.

Both suspects were transported to SP Granville for processing.

They were brought to the Washington County Correctional Facility to await arraignment.

Fortin was later remanded to the facility without bail, and Campeau was released on her own recognizance following arraignment.
