HIGHLANDS, N.Y. – A New York man is accused of holding an 81-year-old Marine Corps veteran hostage in an upstate motel next door to a police station for at least four years in order to steal his benefits checks.

Perry Coniglio (picture) was arrested July 19 in his room adjoining the victim’s at the U.S. Academy Motel in Highlands, just feet away from a building housing police and ambulance services in the Hudson Valley town.

The charges against Coniglio include grand larceny and unlawful imprisonment.
