      Police find $2,000 worth of razors when helping disabled driver

      A Utica man, accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of razors, was arrested when his car broke down.

      State Police stopped to help a disabled driver on ST-12 in the Town of Remsen on Friday.

      Police say 39-year-old Nathaniel Walker, of 125 Pleasant Street, had a suspended driver's license and hypodermic needles in the car. But that's not all. Police searched his car and say they found $2,000 worth of Gillette Fusion Razors which he had allegedly stolen from the Walmart on ST-12 in the Town of Lowville.

      Walker is charged with grand larceny and possession of a hypodermic instrument.

      Another man, 63-year-old John Makuch, of 100 Rutger Street, is charged with grand larceny.

      Both men were arraigned in Lowville Town Court and sent to the Lewis County Jail on cash bail.
