Two men were charged in connection with a series of larcenies from more than a dozen vehicles parked on the city’s west side overnight.

Police said they located the men, who were on bicycles, at about 3 a.m. Saturday when responding to a report of suspicious people in the area of Michael Drive, Lee Drive and Callagan Drive. The development of homes is located off West Avenue, near Saratoga Springs High School.  Authorities allege the two men had entered more than a dozen parked vehicles and were in possession of stolen property from the vehicles at the time of their arrest. The police department is asking anyone who might have had items taken from their vehicle overnight  to contact authorities at 584-1800. 

Kevin C. Leno, 29, of Ash St., was charged with four counts of petit larceny, four counts of criminal possession of stolen property, and one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance, in connection with the alleged incident. All charges are misdemeanors.

Kevin Loubier, 23, of Vanderbilt Terrace, was charged with two misdemeanor counts of petit larceny, and two misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of stolen property.

Police responded to 118 calls during the 24-hour period from 8 a.m. Friday to 8 a.m. Saturday. Police issued one ticket and 16 verbal warnings, mostly to motorists for driving-related incidents. Thirteen reports were initiated in connection with alleged domestic incidents, disputes of a harassing nature, and larcenies. Authorities also responded to an incident at BOCES on Henning Road, where a student allegedly brought a knife to school. The matter will subsequently be handled internally by BOCES, according to the report.
