Marlborough Man Accused of Shooting Houses
A 28-year-old Marlborough man has be charged following an investigation into shots being fired into Ulster County homes.
The Ulster County Sheriff’s Office charged Daniel G. Mahusky with 3rd-degree criminal mischief, 2 counts of 1st-degree reckless endangerment, 4th degree criminal possession of stolen property, 4th degree grand larceny, all felonies, and 4th-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor.
On Tuesday police received a 911 report of a male firing a gun outside a residence. An investigation revealed that prior to the 911 call, Manhusky stole a shotgun from a family member, and fired it off inside a residence, striking holes into walls, destroying electronics, and ripping out electric outlets.
Manhusky also allegedly went outside and fired several shots in the direction of a number of occupied homes. Police say he then continued into a wooded area and again fired several more shots in the directions of houses.
No one was injured. The shotgun cartridges fired appeared to be "bird shot" type ammunition, officials say.
Manhusky was arraigned in the Town of Esopus Justice Court. He was remanded to the Ulster County Jail in lieu of $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 secured bond.
Additional charges by NYS Environmental conservation police are expected.
