On Tuesday, September 13, at 3:30 p.m., the New Windsor Police Department responded to Spruce Street for a report of a residential burglary that had occurred several hours earlier.
Upon arrival, the homeowner reported that someone had entered his home while no one was home and stole several valuable items including a few video game consoles and an assortment of tools. The value of the stolen items totaled over $2,700.00.
Investigation at the scene by New Windsor Police Officers and Detectives developed a description of the suspect through the recovery of security video footage of another homeowner in the same neighborhood. Detectives were then able to locate and recover all of the stolen property involved at a local pawn shop while at the same time identifying a suspect through an ID that he used to pawn the stolen property.
The suspect was determined to be temporarily staying at the Galaxy Motor Inn on Windsor Highway in New Windsor. He was located at the motel and then placed under arrest at New Windsor Police Headquarters.
The arrested suspect, Jesse W. Moranski, 41, of Beacon was charged with Burglary 2nd degree (C Felony), Grand Larceny 4th degree (E Felony), and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 5th degree (D Felony).
Moranski reportedly has four prior Felony convictions in New York State for Burglary and has served over 12-years in state prison for his past crimes.
He was arraigned Before City of Newburgh Judge Anika Mohammed and remanded to Orange County Jail on no bail pending a future court appearance.
