Four men have been arrested for illegally taking deer in separate cases in Putnam and Johnsburg, police said.

Matthew R. Cleveland, 18, of Johnsburg was arrested the night of Oct. 2 after State Police received complaints about illegal use of a firearm to take a deer during bow hunting season, the State Police public information website showed.

He was arrested on River Road, and charged with four misdemeanor counts of illegal taking of game and illegal discharge of a firearm. Cleveland was released pending prosecution in Johnsburg Town Court.

In Putnam, state conservation officers charged three Ticonderoga men with illegally shooting a doe at night using a spotlight in connection with a Sept. 13 incident on Lower Road, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

Jesse Mars, 24, Adam Mosier, 26, and Nicholas Vlamis face five misdemeanors and three violations, including counts of discharging a firearm from a highway, possessing a loaded firearm in a vehicle, taking deer during closed season and taking deer with use of artificial light.

The three were released pending prosecution in Putnam Town Court and could face fines of up to $7,750 and a year in jail.

DEC Lt. Chris Ruckert, and conservation officers Terry Chase, S. Gonyeau and M. Lacroix handled the Putnam case.

Bow hunting season is open in the Northern Zone, while muzzleloader season opens in the Northern Zone on Saturday and bowhunting season opens in the Southern Zone on Saturday.
