LaGrange Man Charged with Burglary of Local Business

The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of Konrad Gumper, age 46 of LaGrange, in connection with a burglary at a LaGrange business during the early morning hours of 6/7/24.

At approximately 4:15 am on 6/7/24 Deputies responded to the Vale Fox Distillery on Noxon Road in response to an alarm at that location. While checking the business Deputies located a subject on the premises, at which time the subject fled on foot and an area search was conducted. A short time later the subject, later identified as Mr. Gumper, was located in an area close to the scene and taken into custody.

At this time Mr. Gumper is accused of forcing entry into the business and doing extensive damage within. He has been charged with burglary in the 3rd degree and criminal mischief in the 2nd degree, which are both felonies. After being processed he was arraigned before the Town of LaGrange Court and remanded to the Dutchess County Justice and Transition Center in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.

The arrest comes as the result of the combined efforts of the Sheriff’s Office’s Patrol Bureau, Detective Bureau, K-9 Unit, and Unmanned Aerial Support Unit (drones). The investigation is continuing and more charges are possible at a later time.

As with any criminal case the charges described above are merely accusations and Mr. Gumper is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
