AMSTERDAM -- An arrest has been made in the wake of a jewelry store burglary in which $30,000 worth of merchandise was stolen, according to Montgomery County sheriff's deputies.

Anthony F. Lee, 24, of 37 Storrie St., has been charged with third-degree burglary and third-degree grand larceny, both felonies, in connection with the burglary, which happened at around 3:50 a.m. on Tuesday, according to sheriff's deputies.

The joint investigation by sheriff's investigators and Amsterdam Police detectives began after deputies were called to Segel's Jewelers, on Route 30, because an alarm had been triggered, according to the sheriff's office report.

When they arrived, deputies found the front window of the store had been broken out, and approximately $30,000 worth of jewelry had been taken.

Lee was arraigned in the Amsterdam Town Court and sent to jail on $10,000 cash bail, deputies said. 

Lee is also facing a charge of criminal possession of stolen property, filed by Amsterdam City Police, because he was found to be in possession of merchandise taken from the store, according to the police report.

Additional charges are possible, according to authorities.
