ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (AP) — State police say bad parking led to the apprehension of an upstate New York man wanted on a probation violation.

Troopers say a state police investigator spotted 23-year-old Matthew Bergeron of Richmondville on Thursday afternoon as he tried to back a vehicle into a parking space at a truck stop in Rotterdam in SchenectadyCounty.

Police say Bergeron parked crookedly, straddling two spaces, then walked away from the vehicle.

The investigator knew Bergeron from previous arrests. He also knew that Bergeron was a suspect in a burglary and was wanted on outstanding warrants in neighboring Schoharie County.

Police say Bergeron was taken into custody without incident. He was sent to the Schoharie County jail.
