An alert resident led to the arrest of two men for stealing two snow blowers and possession of crack Saturday in Stony Point.

The resident called police around 3:20 a.m. Saturday to report two males leaving the Rental Zone on 9W in Stony Point after loading two snow blowers in the back of a van, said Lt. Daniel Hylas.

Patrol officers were given a description of the vehicle and stopped a van a short time later on 9W near Bear Mountain. Officers saw two snow blowers in the van and investigation uncovered further evidence and tools used in the crime. A glass crack pipe containing cocaine residue was also located in the van, Hylas said.

Arrested were Joseph Fleischer, 47, of Walden; and William McDonough, 37, with several Newburgh addresses, but currently homeless, and charged with criminal possession of stolen property; criminal trespass; criminal mischief; possession of burglary tools; felony grand larceny, and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Both are being held at the Rockland County Jail; Fleischer on $45,000 bail and McDonough on $15,000 bail.
