  • Text size: + -


QUEENSBURY, N.Y. -- A Lake George man was arrested for robbery, and police say they used DNA testing to track him down. Yvon Majeus is accused of robbing Jim's Wines and Liquors in Queensbury back in November.

Police say he threatened the store clerk, and was able to get away with an unknown amount of cash. During their investigation, police found an article of clothing near the scene, and used it for DNA tests, leading them to Majeus.

He is charged with robbery and grand larceny, both felonies, and a misdemeanor count of petit larceny. He's now in the Warren County Correctional Facility.
