Gansevoort man indicted in robbery of CVS pharmacy
BALLSTON SPA A Gansevoort man accused of robbing a Saratoga Springs CVS pharmacy at gunpoint in June was indicted Thursday by a Saratoga County grand jury.
Darin L. Zabor, 47, of Brownstone Court, was indicted on felony charges including two counts of first-degree robbery, and one count each of second- and third-degree robbery. He was also charged with misdemeanor possession of a weapon and second-degree menacing.
Zabor is accused of stealing 4,000 hydro-condone narcotic pills at gunpoint during a 12:50 a.m. robbery on June 25, according to city police. He initially fled the Capital Region, but returned two days later planning to take a flight to Florida, and was arrested at the Albany International Airport.
Zabor, who is in jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted of the most serious robbery charges.
Also indicted Thursday was Frank G. Shattuck IV, 27, of West Avenue, Saratoga Springs, on numerous charges, including first-degree burglary and first- and second-degree assault, for an incident that occurred last June 27.
Shattuck is accused of kicking his way into an apartment on Route 29 in Galway where his child and the child's mother lived. Once in the house, he is accused of striking the woman repeatedly in the face and head while their infant child was present, according to the Saratoga County Sheriff's Department.
At the time, deputies said Shattuck already faced charges because of earlier incidents involving the same woman, and she had a court order of protection against him.
Other charges in the indictment include first-degree and second-degree criminal contempt, stalking, and endangering the welfare of a child.
