Former Security Officers Busted

Two former Paul Smith’s College campus-safety officers are facing charges after they allegedly threatened a local woman and refused to let her call for help. The Press Republican reports that Brian L. Taylor and Shawn A. Hopseker, both of Saranac Lake, were taken into custody Tuesday morning after they allegedly barged into the woman’s Franklin residence and disabled her phone. Ray Brook-based State Police went to the home after the woman’s 8-year-old child managed to call 911 on a cell phone. Police said the off-duty officers broke into the home around 4:50 a.m. to harass the woman, who used to date one of the men.
