A 33-year-old man has been arrested in connection with two recent robberies at convenience stores in Delaware County, state police at Oneonta said Tuesday.
Jonathan R. Hynes, whose address wasn’t provided, appeared in Delaware County Court on Tuesday to answer charges contained in a sealed indictment, troopers said in a media release.
Troopers said he was arraigned on two counts of first-degree robbery, one count each of third-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree grand larceny, two counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, and one count of third-degree burglary, all felonies. He also was also charged with criminally possessing a hypodermic instrument and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors.
Hynes was sent to Otsego County jail without bail pending further action in Delaware County Court.
The charges are a result of the investigation of two robberies last month in which the suspect displayed a knife, demanded money from the cash register and fled on foot, troopers said previously. No injuries were reported.
The first robbery was at the Stamford Country Store at 2 Harper St., Stamford, at about 10 p.m. Oct. 26. The second robbery was at the Quickway Store on state Route 23 in Davenport at about 6:30 a.m. Oct. 28.
Investigations into the robberies resulted in identifying additional criminal acts, according to the release.
Also, Jolene L. Hynes, age 36, was charged Oct. 30 with one count of endangering the welfare of a child, troopers said in the release. She was arraigned that date in Stamford Town Court and sent to Delaware County jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail and $2,000 bond, pending appearance in Harpersfield Town Court on Nov. 26.
