TUPPER LAKE - Stephen Paul Whitley got arrested by both village and state police Wednesday.
Whitley was walking to the village to respond to criminal summons when state police saw him and picked him up for their own charges.
Tupper Lake-based state police arrested Whitley, a 23-year-old Tupper Laker, at about 4 p.m. and charged him with criminal mischief in the second degree, a felony, and criminal mischief in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor. Police said the charges stem from Whitley breaking a car window and a house window on March 31.
Then, when village police found out Whitley was in state police custody, they issued him criminal summons for two counts of harassment in the second degree at 9:50 p.m. Police said one count was for a March 30 incident on Park Street, and the second count was for an April 2 incident on Fourth Street. He was scheduled to appear in village court on those charges.
He was arraigned on the state police charges and remanded to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear in town court on the criminal mischief charges at 5 p.m. May 16.
Police said all the incidents had to do with disputes over girls.
