Heuvelton Woman Accused Of Attempted Robbery


A 24 year old Heuvelton woman is behind bars in the St. Lawrence County Jail accused of attempted robbery.

Kelsey Gagnon is being held in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond.

She's charged with a felony count of third-degree attempted robbery and a misdemeanor count of fourth-degree criminal mischief.
State police said Gagnon went to a home on State Street in Heuvelton on April 24.

Officials said she told the 74 year old woman who lives there that her vehicle had broken down and she wanted to use a phone.

According to police, Gagnon left the home and returned a short time later, requesting to use the phone again. 

The alleged victim let Gagnon inside.
Police said Gagnon then grabbed the woman and demanded her prescription medications. 

The alleged victim attempted to activate her Life-Line bracelet to call for help, but police said Gagnon removed the bracelet from her arm, not allowing her to call.
After a brief struggle, police said Gagnon fled the home on foot. 

The St. Lawrence County Sheriffs Department and the United States Border Patrol helped state police identify and arrest Gagnon.
