Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith reported the recent arrest of a Dutchess County man on a charge of burglary.
On March 24, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department received a complaint of a burglary from a resident of the Town of Philipstown.

The suspect was identified as Robert A. Huzar, 27, of 250 Route 52, Fishkill. On April 10, Huzar was located, arrested and charged with burglary in the second degree, a felony. The defendant was arraigned by Town of Philipstown Justice Stephen Tomann and committed to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond pending a May 12 appearance in the Town of Philipstown Justice Court to answer the charge.
If found guilty of the felony charge, the defendant could face up to 15 years in a New York State Correctional Facility and a fine of up to $15,000.
