Here are some stories making headlines across the Hudson Valley.
For the second time this week, a person has been struck and killed by a Metro-North train. This time, it happened near Dover Furnace Road in Dover Plains in Dutchess County just after 6:30 a.m. No further information about the person struck or the incident has been released. Wassaic Branch service between Wassaic and Harlem Valley-Wingdale had to be replaced by buses for several hours this morning during the investigation. Monday, a Peekskill woman was struck and killed by a train in Peekskill.
A Saugerties man is facing charges for allegedly breaking into a home and burglarizing the house. Police say Matthew Doyle broke into the home on Malden Turnpike through a basement window back in September. He was finally arrested Wednesday. Doyle is due in Town of Saugerties Court in April.
And a warning for Walmart shoppers in Rockland County. Ramapo police are searching for a suspect they say attached a skimming device to a self-checkout register at the Airmont location. Police say they don't know when the device was put there. They say if you shop at that Walmart, check your bank account for suspicious activity.
