Four Arrested in Milton Home Invasion, Kidnapping

MILTON — Four people were arrested following an investigation into two separate home invasions in the Town of Milton occuring in the early morning hours of
Mar. 10. 

Arthur E. Brust, age 19 and Laurie M. Cannelli age 52, of Ballston Spa were arrested with Linda M. Sims, age 24,  and Timothy P. Sims, age 26, of Malta, are alleged to have forced their way into a residence, assaulting a man, then kidnapping him at knife point.

The victim was taken to a second residence, where each of the subjects then forced entry and assaulted two more people in the home, and damaged property inside. Both victims at the second residence sustained stabbing injuries.

All four alleged perpetrators split up and fled from the scene, three of which were stopped by members of the Sheriff’s office just down the road. Cannelli made itn back to her residence on Franklin Street, where she was arrested shortly thereafter.

One of the victims and one of the assailants from the stabbing were treated at Saratoga Hospital and released from care.

The defendants were processed and transported to the Greenfield Town Court where they were arraigned by Judge Ginley and remanded to the Saratoga County Jail for lack of bail. The defendants will return to the Milton Town Court at a later date.

Both Sims were involved in a similiar attack in 2009. Read more here:
