Reinhart was arrested following investigations into multiple burglaries, thefts and gas drive-offs in both counties, state police said. Investigators in Cobleskill and Princetown coordinated their efforts and identified Reinhart as a suspect, troopers said.
State police then served a search warrant on his residence Thursday and uncovered numerous items reported stolen in the incidents, including an ATV reported stolen from a Duanesburg residence in November and items taken in a Esperance burglary earlier this month, troopers said.
