JAMESTOWN – New York’s bail reform law is blamed for a Jamestown man’s crime spree over the weekend.

Jamestown Police say Patrick Blakemore has been arrested 11 times so far this year, 9 of which were in the month of April alone.

Most recently, Blakemore was charged in connection with an alleged shoplifting incident at the North Main Street 7-Eleven store in Jamestown.

The arrest, police say, happened just 12 hours after the man allegedly struggling with officers attempting to arrest him for allegedly trespassing at a local pharmacy on Friday night.

Officers say that was the sixth call involving Blakemore since 3 p.m. Saturday.

He was taken into custody, again, and charged with petit larceny before being released.
