Sheriff: Woman Caused Thousands in Damage at Husband's Queensbury Home

A Gansevoort resident is charged with Criminal Mischief and Insurance Fraud after an incident on her husband's property.            

Warren County Deputy Sheriffs believe 34 year old Kelli A. Swinton drove her 2016 Toyota Highlander to her husband’s property on Bay Road in the Town of Queensbury on December 1st and deliberately caused damage.  During the 2 am incident, Swinton allegedly struck several items with her vehicle, causing over $11,000 in damage.  Shortly later Swinton was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated.

The Department says at the time of her arrest, law enforcement was unaware of the property damage as it was not reported until later that morning. 

Legal fees are mounting for Swinton.  She is also accused of filling a false claim with her automobile insurance company reporting damage to her Highlander was a result of a motor vehicle accident.  As a result, the insurance company paid over $8,000 to repair Swinton’s vehicle.   That payment is the basis of the Insurance Fraud charge.
