N.Y. – A local man is under arrest following a two-month long investigation
into the theft of a motor vehicle in Stillwater.

Stillwater
Police arrested William B. Shafer, 26, of Stillwater on an arrest warrant
charging him with felony 4th-Degree Grand Larceny.

According to

unrelated criminal conviction. He was produced in Stillwater Town Court, arraigned and
later sent back to prison.
