Morning Read: State police nab alleged Irene looters in Jay

This is the first case of post-Irene looting I’ve heard of in the North Country.  Four men allegedly stole guns, alcohol and a television set from homes and businesses evacuated after the floods.

The uniform was recovered, and the investigation is continuing with Malone-based State Police.
