The Town of Haverstraw Police Department has officially announced the apprehension of two individuals in connection with an ongoing arson investigation linked to the former Letchworth Village property.
Law enforcement authorities have identified the suspects as an 18-year-old male and a 16-year-old male. Due to legislative restrictions imposed by the state of New York, the names of the accused have not been disclosed to the public.
Both individuals have been charged with Arson in the 3rd degree, as well as Criminal Trespass in the 3rd degree, in relation to the incident under investigation. The charges carry significant legal consequences, and the suspects will now face the legal process as it unfolds.
It is crucial to emphasize that a criminal complaint is merely an accusation, and under the principles of justice, all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The legal system will ultimately determine their guilt or innocence as the case progresses.
The community and residents in the vicinity of Letchworth Village have been following the developments closely, and the police department is urging anyone with additional information relevant to the case to come forward. Cooperation from the public can play a pivotal role in ensuring that justice is served.
The Town of Haverstraw Police Department continues to work diligently to uncover all relevant facts surrounding the arson incident at the former Letchworth Village property, and updates on the case will be provided as they become available.
