NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a New York man is facing charges in last summer’s theft of more than $200,000 from a Hudson Valley credit union.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (https://bit.ly/1QYwnKn ) police said Wednesday that 27-year-old Joshua Dejesus is accused of being one of two armed and masked men who stormed into the Newburgh branch of the Hudson Heritage Federal Credit Union on Aug. 24, raided the vault and took off.

Dejesus, who lives in Wappinger in Dutchess County, is charged with first-degree robbery. He’s being held Thursday in the Orange County Jail.

It’s unclear if they have attorneys who could comment on the charges.
