ULSTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A 71-year-old homeless man is behind bars after Ulster County Sheriff's deputies say he broke into a home and stole the victim's car.
Deputies say Colin Schermerhorn crawled through a window at a home on Otens Road in the Town of Wawarsing Wednesday morning. When the homeowner tried to call 911, the victim says Schermerhorn broke the phone and would not let the homeowner leave. Deputies say the 71-year-old then took off in the victim's car.
Schermerhorn was arrested early Thursday morning and charged burglary, criminal mischief, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. He is being held at Ulster County Jail without bail.
