On January 20, 2023, State Police of Granville arrested April L. Campeau, 44, of Whitehall, NY, and Joseph R. Fortin, 36, of Whitehall, NY, each for Burglary in the Third Degree, seven counts of Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Fourth Degree, four counts of Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Fifth Degree, three counts on Criminal Possession on a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree, and two counts of Criminally Using Drug Paraphernalia in the Second Degree. 

On January 20, 2023, at about 9:45 a.m. Troopers responded to a business on County Route 9 in Whitehall, NY, reporting a burglary that had just occurred.  Campeau and Fortin were located walking on State Route 4 in possession of property stolen from the business. The investigation determined Campeau and Fortin were responsible for the Burglary. In addition, the suspects were in possession of other stolen property and drugs.

Both suspects were transported to SP Granville for processing. Both were brought to the Washington County Correctional Facility to await arraignment.  Fortin was later remanded to the facility without bail, and Campeau was released on her own recognizance following arraignment.
