BETHLEHEM—Over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the Bethlehem Police Department conducted a multi-tiered effort to reduce alcohol and drug related offenses. The initiative was made possible due to grants received from Albany County STOP DWI and the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee on DWI Crackdown.
BPD arrested three motorists for driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs and cited three others for selling alcohol to minors.
Gurjinder Singh, 30, of Glenmont, was working at the Glenmont Mobil when he was cited for selling to a minor. It was reportedly determined that he initially provided Bethlehem Police with a fictitious name and so he was also charged with a misdemeanor count of false personation. Singh was arraigned in the Town of Bethlehem Court by Judge Andrew Kirby and released after posting $500 bail.
On Sunday, March 18, Bethlehem Police were called back to the Glenmont Mobil when it was reportedly determined that Singh, while still employed at the store, had stolen several thousand dollars from the store and then left the business unattended. As the result of an investigation by BPD, an active felony warrant has been issued for Singh’s arrest for Grand Larceny charges. Anyone with information on Singh’s whereabouts is asked to contact Bethlehem Police at 518-439- 9973.
