TWO ARRESTS MADE AFTER PURSUIT OF STOLEN ATV--Canton-based State Police arrested 18-year-old Megan Angus of Snye, Quebec Friday on a felony grand larceny charge alleging she stole an ATV from a location on Butternut Ridge in Pierrepont. That ATV was spotted by St.Lawrence County Sheriff's Deputies with a helmet-less male operator on Route 56 in Potsdam; they pursued the machine until it traveled off the road into the woods. State Police infomed Deputies the ATV was stolen; a witness reported a male left the woods and got into a van. The van, containing Angus and the male ATV operator, 26-year-old Cory Edwards of Snye was intercepted on Route 56 in Norfolk. Edwards was charged with many counts to include a State Police charge of stolen property possession, and counts from Deputies to include failure to comply and reckless operation. Both Angus and Edwards were arraigned late Friday before Pierrepont Town Justice Robert Camp and committed to the county lockup in Canton on 10-thousand-dollars cash bail or 20-thousand-dollars bail bond.
