QUEENSBURY -- A South Glens Falls man who has been arrested on felony charges three times in recent months was arrested again this week for allegedly burglarizing the automotive business where he formerly worked, officials said.
John T. Harris, 54, of Chestnut Street was charged with felony counts of burglary and criminal mischief in connection with an April 20 break-in at Hoffman’s Jiffy Lube in Queensbury. The business was heavily damaged and money and vehicle inspection stickers were missing.
Warren County sheriff’s Lt. Steve Stockdale said DNA taken from blood found in the business was tested and linked to Harris.
He had worked at the Quaker Road business, and went in after hours and caused more than $1,000 in damage to computer equipment and other items. Sheriff’s investigators Ed Affinito and Doug David handled the case.
The case marked the fourth in which Harris was charged with felonies since the spring.
He faces counts of attempted robbery and grand larceny in separate cases in Rensselaer County, and was charged with five felonies by State Police in Queensbury for allegedly taking three vehicles and selling them for scrap at a scrap yard.
Harris is being held in Rensselaer County without bail.
