On November 12, 2020, State Police Investigators and Troopers in Cobleskill arrested 52-year-old Dennis J. Swint of Richmondville for Grand Larceny 4th and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 4th, both E Felonies.


Swint was arrested following an investigation which began in July when an elderly Summit resident reported fraud in which his credit card had been used for numerous unauthorized transactions.  Swint’s charges stem from illegally using the stolen credit card on June 6, 2020 in the Town of Cobleskill.  The investigation is continuing, and additional charges are expected in the case.    

Swint was arraigned in the Cobleskill Town Court and remanded to the Schoharie County Jail in lieu of no bail.  He is scheduled to return to court on 11/17/2020.
