Putnam man charged with shooting house while hunting
Nov 8, 2008

LIVINGSTON - A Putnam County man, who was hunting in the Columbia County Town of Clermont on Sunday, was charged with reckless endangerment in the second degree after he shot and hit a house while hunting on Sunday.

A state trooper was dispatched to County Rt. 2 in the Town of Clermont for a complaint of a house struck by a shotgun slug.

The officer patrolled the area and found Francis Salubro, 55, of Putnam Valley still in his hunting spot from which he shot and hit the neighboring house.

He claimed he could not see the house even though the trooper could clearly see it.

Salubro's gun was confiscated and he was charged. He was issued an appearance ticket to appear in Town of Clermont Court later this week..
