Lagrange, New York – On September 29, 2020 the New York State Police from the Poughkeepsie barracks arrested Zackary R. Beck, age 30, of Lagrange, for Robbery in the 1st degree, a class B felony.

At approximately 9:15 a.m., the State Police responded to the TOPS market on 16 Jon J. Wagner Way in the town of Lagrange for a report of a robbery.  Store employees stated a man threatened the use of a gun which was not displayed and demanded money.  The clerk handed the suspect $2,500.00 in U.S. currency who then fled the scene on foot.

Investigation determined Zackary Beck acted as though he had a gun in order to obtain cash from the store.  He then fled on foot and was apprehended by the State Police at his residence.  A search warrant executed at his residence led to the recovery of the stolen U.S. currency.

Beck was arraigned before the town of Lagrange Court, and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 secure bond.  He is next scheduled to appear before the Court on October 5, 2020, at 3:00 p.m.
