HUDSON — A Stockport man was charged with possession of stolen property after he was found with credit cards allegedly taken from a car parked at Columbia Memorial Hospital, police said.
Shawn Szepessy, 35, was arrested Monday in the Amtrak parking lot in Hudson, Police Chief L. Edward Moore said Thursday.
Szepessy was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a class E felony, Moore said.
On Monday at about 10:22 p.m., Hudson officers Kevin Keyser and Randy Strattman were making a routine check of the Amtrak long-term parking lot on South Front Street when they found a parked vehicle with the passenger-side window smashed in, Moore said.
Police continued checking the area and found Szepessy, seated in his vehicle, with small cuts to his hand, Moore said.
Szepessy had a small window punch tool and four stolen credit cards, Moore said.
The two officers located the owner of the credit cards at Columbia Memorial Hospital, where she is employed, Moore said. Her vehicle was found in the hospital parking garage with a broken window and her purse was missing.
Szepessy received an appearance ticket for Hudson City Court. He is scheduled to appear Oct. 22, Moore said.
The investigation is ongoing and more charges may be pending, Moore said.
Police are asking anyone who may have been a victim of a recent car break-in to call 518-828-3388.
