Two Malone men face charges after auto-shop burglary

NORTH BANGOR — Burglars crashed a truck through an overhead door of an auto-sales shop here, and two Malone men face charges.

The break-in was called in around 8:30 a.m. Saturday, April 21, at Tony’s Auto Sales on Route 11, New York State Police said Friday in a press release.

After the pickup truck was used to gain entrance to the pre-owned-auto sales establishment, two engines and other auto parts were stolen, police said.

Most of the pilfered parts were recovered from an area scrap yard.

On Thursday morning, police arrested Christopher W. Tuper, 31, in the Village of Malone and, later in the day, Adam F. Gervais, 25, in Plattsburgh.

Tuper is charged with third-degree burglary, a felony, and was arraigned in Bangor Town Court. He was committed to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail.

Gervais is charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony, and was arraigned in Ellenburg Town Court. He was committed to Clinton County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail.

Both men remained incarcerated Friday afternoon.

The investigation was ongoing, police said, and further arrests were pending.

Store owner Tony LaPage did not want to comment on the burglary.

Both Gervais and Tuper have tangled with the law before.

In 2005, Gervais was charged with arson and the following year was charged with violating probation. He faced charges of burglary and criminal possession of stolen property in 2007 and driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation in late 2011.

Tuper was charged with forgery, grand larceny, possession of a forgery device and falsifying business records in 2004 and possession of a forged instrument in 2009.

The Press-Republican did not have resolutions on these cases, but Gervais did serve time in state prison from 2006 to 2009 on two attempted-burglary charges.

MALONE - Two men were charged with burglary after they allegedly used a pickup truck to crash through the door of an auto sales store and stole auto parts.

Christopher W. Tuper, 31, and Adam F. Gervais, 25, both of Malone, drove a pickup through an overhead door at Tony's Auto Sales on state Route 11 in North Bangor, according to state police. Police said the two men then stole a number of auto parts, including two vehicle engines, and the majority of the stolen property was recovered from an area scrap yard.

Tuper was charged with burglary in the third degree, arraigned in Bangor Town Court and remanded to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.

I love what I am reading! No comment on Tuper since I know nothing of him but way to go on catching that Gervais thief. Once a thief always a thief.

They watch too much tv . You see that happen in all these cop shows, and thats where they get the idea.
They have to do their time they did the crime.
Hopefully they dont have wives and children to face the consequences.
